    Article: Addressing industry skills shortages by engaging in the new QCTO framework 26TH MAY 2022

    By Roland Innes, Group CEO, Dyna Training and Leoni MacKenzie, QCTO Subject Matter Expert in Qualifications Development

    Snippet out of this article:
    “To this end the QCTO has implemented skills programmes, effectively a shorter skills syllabus, at the end of which a learner can gain entry into a qualification or a part-time qualification. This also has the immediate benefit of making the individual more employable. In addition to increasing and keeping their own skills in-house, businesses can contribute to the career development of their people which provides a greater level of motivation and incentive. Skills development training also assists with reducing absenteeism where workers feel that the training they’re getting is valuable to their personal growth, contributing to a more committed workforce. Where companies offer skills development opportunities, it becomes possible to redirect budget spend previously used for recruitment into training, shifting the focus to retention instead of acquisition”.
