Upskilling your workforce

Boost employee performance and retention

Did you know you can use apprenticeships to upskill and retrain your existing workforce?

You can use apprenticeship training to:

  • fill key skill gaps in your business
  • boost employee motivation by investing in their development
  • improve retention

For example, an experienced employee may be keen to get a formal qualification in their specialist area. 

Or perhaps someone has the aptitude and drive to learn something new and progress into a different role?

There are apprenticeships from level 2 to level 7 (equivalent to a degree) so you’ll be able to find apprenticeships that suit the learning and development needs of your employees.

Apprenticeships are designed by employers so they reflect the relevant knowledge, skills and behaviours that your business needs.
