Challenges for Providers-Employers We know employers value the qualifications: They want to provide training and development opportunities for staff They see the main benefits as increased employee satisfaction, motivation and retention HOWEVER: Engagement for some employers, can be passive rather than active: Training is the job of the provider – done by someone else Willing to sign paperwork but not to take time out to review the learners progress with training provider staff
Challenges for Providers-Employers In a recent JHP survey, learners were asked.... Do you agree with the following statement ? “ My employer is involved in my training programme.....” We asked those who respond negatively to this question, how they would like their employer to be more involved: –48% said “Taking an interest in work I Produce” –44% said “Supporting with the completion of work between visits” –27% “Meeting with my assessor when he/she visits”
