When you run a website designing agency, not having the necessary graphic design skills in-house can lead to a major headache. Your time, money, and reputation are at stake if you fall into the problem of having weak graphic design skills. How will you fill this void? By improving the web graphic design skills of an existing employee.
Fill The Graphic Design Gap
Picture the scene: You’re given a project that requires extensive graphic design work, but you don’t have someone in-house with the necessary skills.
So you advertise online or go to a recruitment agency to find someone on a freelance or temporary contract basis. You invest time, money, and resources in hiring a designer that you believe has the necessary skills.
The next project arrives, but the designer is unavailable. You restart your search. You’ve wasted more time and more money trying to fill the graphic design gap at your web agency but the hole still remains.
At Strohacker Design School, we recognise that hiring a full-time graphic designer isn’t necessarily the way forward – especially in the modern digital world – but upskilling your workforce certainly is!
UpSkill Your Work Force
Upskilling employees is not a new phenomenon, Apprenticeship schemes have been in place since the early 90’s offering businesses the opportunity cheaper labour on the basis of them passing on their extensive knowledge and industry experience.
Employers build Apprenticeships that reflect the appropriate information, skills, and behaviours that a company requires. However, Apprenticeships work on the basis of offering significantly lower salaries to employees and forcing them into a classroom to learn once a week.
Upskilling your workforce with Strohacker Design School will change all of that – for the better! Strohacker Design School offers full time, part-time and online remote graphic design courses to give businesses flexibility when it comes to providing employees with new, essential digital media skills like graphic design.
