Training in your business

Knowing where to start with training your staff can be difficult. You might know the day-to-day tasks that they need to be able to do – and they might already have the skills to do them – but what about the training that will develop them further? How can you identify what skills could help them do their job even better? We have a range of resources to help you get started, covering how to identify staff’s training needs and finding the time to train staff, and links to training courses such as skills bootcamps, digital skills training, and national programmes.
