During Scottish Apprenticeship Week we will be running Apprenticeships Roadshow 2021, a series of four live webinars over 1st-4th March 2021.
It’s never been more important to show our support for apprenticeships! Scottish Apprenticeship Week is a time to share the value apprenticeships can bring to individuals, employers and the economy.
At Standard Life Aberdeen, our early careers programs form a vital part of our talent strategy, bringing fresh thinking and new skills to our business as well as helping us build the next generation of leaders. This autumn we were delighted to welcome 29 new graduates and 22 new trainees across all many functions within the SLA business.
In the skills-based role play, the learners can experience through play, a variety of industries. This role play begins a short input initiated by the teacher, which quickly becomes a brief discussion about the skills and jobs that might be involved in the profession that has been set up.
Our Programme Manager, Michelle Fenwick and our Business Support and Communications Officer, Emma Lacey have been running an induction for a group of Business Skills Foundation Apprentices who will be completing the work placement element of the qualification with the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce.
This year has seen many changes to our working lives and a significant portion of the workforce moving their desks from the office to the living room. The shift to remote working has seen many employers faced with the challenge of on-boarding new members of staff remotely rather than in person. The induction of a new recruit, particularly of a young person moving into their first job, can make or break their experience with the organisation.
In challenging times, people, and teams, like you and yours, can add more value to your customers and business by learning how to work more effectively together. To support you with developing this and to help your remote working relationships Get The Gen, www.getthegen.com , have specially developed an interactive webinar for you.
The key to success of the DYW strategy is partnership working and here we spotlight this in practice.
When travelling around our region it is highly likely you will have passed a Robertson Construction site. Robertson have a large portfolio of work across the city including the regeneration of Pennywell and Muirhouse Town Centre, the Royal Highland Showground Pavilion and the Raeburn Place Sporting Ground.
In this edition we shine a spotlight on our very own Emma Lacey. Emma joined us from High School almost three years ago as an Apprentice in Business Administration and is on a great journey to a career in Marketing and Design. Emma was keen to get into the world of work and felt the apprenticeship pathway was right for her.
