Apprenticeship and Skills Plus Service
Apprenticeships are a cost-effective way for your organisation to grow talent and develop a motivated, skilled, and qualified workforce. We have partnered with the Furniture and Interiors Education, Skills and Training Alliance (FIESTA) on a new free service to support businesses in the furniture and furnishing industry to close their skills gaps and take on apprentices with ease. The service helps companies recruit new talent, up-skill existing employees and act as a central resource for information advice and guidance on apprenticeships. If you would like to find out more and to arrange a conversation, please contact the skills plus coordinator Natalie Cole: Natalie@furnituremakers.org.uk
