We know how important it is to recruit the right people, with the right skills. We offer innovative programmes to help people develop core skills to work in your sector.
We work with you to recruit people with the right skills by creating a sector-based work academy programme (SWAPs) for your business.
We provide a tailored skills training programme for potential recruits. Once they have completed the training, they can take a voluntary placement or interview with your business.
This enables you to select the best candidates for your needs. This puts developing the right skills in the heart of the hiring process and helps you find the right employees from the start.
Developing your staff
Improving the skills of your staff makes a better, happier workforce.
Taking the time to develop your staff can close the skills gap as your business changes without having to recruit new staff. Taking the time to upskill and reskill your staff is a great way to keep employees engaged.
The WEA works with you to help identify the skills in your workforce. We can then create a training and development programme tailored to bridge the skill gap.
We offer a wide range of courses to develop your staff, including:
- health and safety
- digital skills
- time management
- literacy and numeracy
We offer a wide range of sector-specific qualifications in health and social care, retail and hospitality, education, childcare and business administration.
Speak to us today and discover how we can work together to meet your staff development needs.
Retaining your staff
Retaining talented staff is fundamental to any good business as high staff turnover is expensive.
Improving staff mental wellbeing and promoting personal development are essential in staff retention. Our courses improve staff wellbeing and give them professional development opportunities.
If you want to know how to keep staff motivated, work with us to create a programme of employee development.
Demonstrating that employee learning is important creates an environment where your staff will thrive rather than leave.
To help your staff take the next step, we offer courses to advance digital skills and leadership courses up to ILM Level 3 Diploma in Leadership and Management.
Whether you want to upskill your current workforce or improve mental wellbeing or stress awareness, our courses will help.
