TRAINING TRENDS TO COMEBACK IN 2022 

IF THE PANDEMIC PROVED ANYTHING, IT MADE PEOPLE REFLECT AND RECOMMIT TO THEIR TRUE PRIORITIES.

Last year we saw an increase in the number of virtual job fairs, adult learning, mental health training, back to work initiatives, digital upskilling and so on.

1 IN 6 OF OUR LISTENERS INTEND TO LEARN A NEW SKILL IN 2022.

While the need for manual skills has fallen, digital, social, and emotional skills training have seen a drastic rise, making the labour market even more competitive.

WHETHER YOU HELP YOUNG PEOPLE DISCOVER THEIR TALENTS OR HELP ADULTS WHO HAVE BEEN FURLOUGHED GET BACK INTO TRAINING, NOW IS A GREAT TIME TO TARGET AND REACH THEM.

Community Spirit Beyond the Pandemic

ONE OF THE BIGGEST POSITIVES TO COME OUT OF THE PANDEMIC IS THE RISE IN LOCAL SOLIDARITY.

Post pandemic there are many that want to keep on giving their time & support to their local communities.

OUR LISTENERS ARE 15% MORE LIKELY TO BELONG TO OR HELP OUT WITH A LOCAL COMMUNITY ORGANISATION, COMPARED TO THE GENERAL POPULATION.

They say that in addition to supporting local business, they have more time to be part of local community initiatives.

In fact, they want to get involved, they’re just waiting for you to ask.
