It is really important that employers have access to the right skills as we emerge from lockdown and Glory, a leader in cash technology systems, has continued with planned apprenticeship enrolment to safeguard the future.
Working with SBC Training a new group has commenced on an Engineering Apprenticeship. Enrolment, induction and much of the day release training will initially be delivered by a new on line programme which has been trialled by the current group from Glory Global who transferred to on-line when Covid 19 prevented attendance at the training centre. Their training has progressed so well that the company felt confident to go ahead with the new group. One of the new group is an existing employee who is currently furloughed, but the company is making best use of this time by getting his apprenticeship underway.
Colin Thaw, Managing Director of SBC Training, said ‘It is really encouraging to see that apprenticeships are still going ahead and that organisations are continuing to plan for the future. Employers may not be aware that it is quite acceptable for furloughed employees to take part in training and development and that apprenticeships are available for existing employees. SBC Training is also accessing European funding to provide a range of shorter qualifications which furloughed and non-furloughed employees can join to learn new skills or enhance existing skills in readiness for the times ahead.’
