As a team we help our people develop new talents to support them achieve their career aspirations through a blended learning approach involving eLearning, classroom sessions, mentoring, coaching and on the job learning.

"The eLearning platform performs very well and is extremely flexible, allowing us to check that colleagues have understood the content. As a user the platform is very intuitive and easy to use," Michelle Tattersall, learning and development advisor. 

We have a purpose built training centre that provides simulated training environments for practical courses such as; confined spaces, streetworks, and fire marshal training, enabling the most realistic training scenarios to take place in the safest way.

We are here to help, and provide information, advice and guidance sessions for any colleagues that need a helping hand in deciding which direction their career may take next.

"I preferred the virtual learning - it seems a lot more engaging instead of the classroom learning where I was at the back of the class hiding behind my PC monitor. The course only had a small group and the teacher made sure we understood each topic before moving on." Feedback from one employee carrying out a training course during the coronavirus lockdown.
