Training your existing staff

Not only can you recruit new employees via the Northern Skills Group apprenticeship programmes, you can also train and develop your existing team. Forever changing developments in technology, legislation and compliance makes it vitally important to make sure existing staff are giving opportunities to expand their knowledge and advance their skill set. Investing in existing staff helps prepare employees for the future as well as increasing productivity and motivation.

We understand the importance of training existing staff which is why they receive the same format of training and support from our assessors with training being primarily delivered in the workplace to ensure minimum disruption to your business.

As part of an apprenticeship there will be an element of off-the-job training where the apprentice will undertake learning outside of the workplace. As an employer, you will support the off the job learning hours by allowing the apprentice time in their contracted working hours to complete guided learning, directed online learning and completion of assignments. All employers must permit 20% of each apprentice’s employed hours to be used for off-the-job training.
