Why #SkillsForLife Starts With Your Existing Team.

Improve performance, progress careers




National apprenticeship week is upon us once again. It’s the perfect opportunity for employers, training providers, and the wider community to celebrate apprenticeships. This year, the focus is on how apprenticeships provide individuals with valuable #skillsforlife. In an ever-evolving world, training programmes that teach skills for life are critical. Workers need to adapt to emerging technologies and future changes in such fast-paced industries. So, where do you start? With your existing team, of course. Here, we’ll explain why…

Unlock your team’s future

Upskilling existing workers isn’t just a smart move, it’s the right move. Well-established members of your team already know the ropes, ethos, and vision of your business, and are worth investing in.

Consider how many of your employees are brimming with potential. If you’re not surprised by the numbers, it’s definitely time to take action. By improving your existing employee’s skill set, you’re placing them and your business in the best position to tackle future changes and challenges – not just current ones.

Inspire apprentices

Apprenticeship training can really boost employee motivation, as it demonstrates your enthusiasm to retain their talent and invest in their future. Team members are more likely to feel confident in their work if they know you’re keen to back and support them to reach new heights.

Plus, employees will be pleased to see you address any skill gaps in your business. When you offer growth opportunities for existing team members, you inspire them to put themselves forward to learn something new.

Select the ideal programme

Different apprenticeships offer various skills for life – and finding one that ticks all your boxes can take some figuring out. So, how do you determine which apprenticeship is best for your new and existing employees to learn valuable skills for life?
