British kitchen manufacturer Moores has expanded its apprenticeship scheme, rolling it out across the business.
The roll out of the scheme began with an in-depth analysis into the resources and skills needed, across the company, which has helped to develop a training programme, strengthening Moores’ skilled workforce.
Moores’ apprenticeship programme is supported by The Apprenticeship Levy, designed to help companies offer more apprenticeships in many different sectors and to boost training.
By working with The Apprenticeship Levy, Moores has been able to invest in both new and existing employees’ development across the likes of Project Management, Leadership and HR Support.
Pictured is Freya Sapcote, the first apprentice to have been recruited into the HR function of the company and will receive a recognised HR qualification at the end of her two-year placement.
Due to COVID restrictions, Moores has been working with their providers to adapt training methods to be delivered online sessions via Microsoft Teams in addition to remote learning.
Head of HR at Moores Hayley Hodge commented: ““At Moores, we have always been committed to training and investing in the next generation of talent.
“Our apprenticeship programme is part of a longer-term development and succession plan that is set to strengthen the many sectors of our workforce, including finance, kitchen installation and engineering.
“We are also delighted to be able to provide those who may be worried about their next steps during this time of uncertainty in the working world with the chance to get their foot in the door.”
FIESTA, which aims to develop skills, training and employment opportunities within the furniture and interiors industies, has recently announced its commitment to The Kickstart Initiative to help employers offer apprenticeships.
