A guide for tradespeople has been published by heating and utilities training provider Skills Training Group, according to a report in probuildermag.co.uk. The free, downloadable resource provides unemployed tradespeople with practical business advice, and also includes tips for those looking to develop their existing skillset.
The shortage of skilled tradespeople is a longstanding problem in the UK. As a result, the need for experienced tradespeople to expand their skillset has become more urgent than ever. The guide is especially aimed at those who find themselves out of work, or working less than they normally would, and have time to invest in their professional development.
The free training resource provides advice on a variety of topics, both of a practical and business nature. It includes up to date guidance on digital marketing for the self-employed and why it is more important than ever before.
Mark McShane, managing director of Skills Training Group, commented:
“The last year has been extremely difficult for all of us with the latest lockdown hitting us particularly hard. Many tradespeople are once again faced with increasing challenges as a result of the restrictions which have been imposed.
“We hope the guide can help people develop their existing skill sets and support them through these challenging times.
“If work has dropped off or you simply have more free time as a result of the lockdown, now is a great time to invest in your professional development whether that be acquiring a new trade-specific skill or enhancing your knowledge of digital marketing.”
Other topics included are how to keep yourself and others safe while you work, and government guidance on PPE and social distancing, specific to tradespeople, that you may need to adopt. There is also information on who is eligible for government backed financial support schemes.
