More than 40% of professionals working in the UK jewellery sector claim they receive no formal training within their current role.
Asked which statement best describes the level of training that their current employer provides, some 41% of respondents to the Professional Jeweller Job Satisfaction Survey so far said they were not involved in any sort of measured training plan.
31% of those polled indicated they would like to receive more training than they are presently afforded, while 28% stated that they were “satisfied” with the level of training offered to them.
Not a single respondent has yet said they ‘receive too much training’.
Attending an external training course remains the favoured choice for jewellery executives, according to the survey. 55% of respondents prefer off-site courses when undergoing job-related training.
Having an outside trainer come into the place of work also ranks highly with the trade. 21% of workers believe this method of learning is the most effective form of training.
Full analysis of the Professional Jeweller Job Satisfaction Survey will continue as the results come in and we are urging everybody to take part in order to create the best possible data.
The survey is completely anonymous and does not require any obligatory contact information to be filled in.
