Whilst on the job training is very valuable, we highly recommend that you include 3rd party training providers as part of your staff training strategy. Not only is this motivational for your team, but you can be assured that your team will be exposed to the latest insights and will learn the theory behind the practice (which often makes elements of the job suddenly make sense). They will also learn best practice rather than bad habits which can be a by-product of in-house training.
Depending on the position of your team and the requirements of your business there are a range of opportunities you might want to consider including higher education courses, industry specific qualifications or more general courses to cover areas such as customer service or health and safety.
Within this section, we’ve included information on a range of course providers including a guide to those organisations that offer fully funded courses for Lincolnshire Businesses.
