Time and attendance systems can help employees better manage apprenticeships in the energy sector
Modern and flexible time and attendance systems will become a must have for companies in the energy sector as the need to train apprentices becomes more dire.
And that time is almost at hand, since the energy industry must recruit around 208,000 skilled people in the next eight years, according to a recent statement by SSE.
The energy supplier has warned that around half of the sector’s workforce are expected to retire by 2023, so this is the best time to invest in apprenticeship programmes.
The company’s announcement is directly related to the National Apprenticeship Week, which starts today. SSE offers apprenticeship programmes lasting three to four years in different areas ranging from contracting, power distribution and generation to home services.
John Stewart, SSE Director of Human Resources said: “We’re boosting our apprentice numbers by 20%, investing £11.68 million – an average of £80,000 per trainee – to recruit and train the workforce of the future. What’s more, apprenticeship programmes work for the country as well as young people and business.”
