Training Furloughed Employees Encouraged

Training Furloughed Employees Encouraged

“Furloughed employees should be encouraged to undertake training.”- Gov, 2020

With many of you being placed on the furlough scheme due to the covid-19 pandemic, it has left you looking for a way to occupy your mind and find something productive to do. With training encouraged and much more free time. It is the perfect opportunity for you to learn something new, brush up on current skills or get your certifications up to date ready for when your company re-opens. There are many courses available from health and safety to diamond drilling & sawing specific courses and NVQ’s. Training ranges from 1 day courses up to 18-month apprenticeships, there’s something for everyone to get stuck into.

Remember training furloughed employees is encouraged and doesn’t affect the furlough scheme.
