Training is important and developing your existing staff can help to motivate them and help with retention. One of the advantages of The Collective is the wide range of programmes we can offer, everything from accountancy to administration, construction to customer care, hairdressing to hospitality, management to motor vehicle repair/service and team leading to transport and logistics.
The customised training is delivered both on and off the job by qualified trainers, using the latest computer-based training techniques. We offer Apprenticeships, National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs), bespoke short courses and Adult Apprenticeships, all delivered to national standards by our specialist vocational training teams.
Many businesses consider skills shortages and recruitment difficulties a bigger threat to performance than soaring oil prices and declining consumer spending, and more than a quarter of these rate this form of vocational training higher than any other qualification.
Apprenticeships ensure that your workforce has the practical skills and qualifications your organisation needs now and in the future. The mixture of on and off-job learning ensures they pick up the skills that work best for your business. Apprenticeships also can help your business attract new talent.
