We have joined forces with Skills West to support their free workshops and share some of the benefits of taking on apprentices and our director Clare Vertigen will be running a workshop to cover the basics of taking on an apprentice. Businesses are just not aware of the benefits that hiring an apprentice can bring, how developing existing valued staff through apprenticeships improves retention, skills and morale and how they can be effective for SMEs as well as larger employers
You can read more about our director Clare Vertigen,her experience, background and her expansive knowledge of apprenticeships in this blog post :Business West Blog: Clare Vertigen
The workshops are fully funded and you can book your place here: Business Skills Workshops – Autumn 2018
Skills West, alongside Flexology, Atoll HR and The South West Apprenticeship Company, is running a series of free Business Skills Workshops throughout Autumn 2018 which will cover topics ranging from flexible working, recruitment and diversity in the workplace, to developing your workforce, avoiding hiring costs, talent management, staff retention and apprenticeships for SMEs
These fully funded workshops are aimed at all companies across the West of England, regardless of sector or industry, and will be interactive, with lots of discussion, questions and sharing of ideas.
