We see a raft of learning and training needs as this country moves forward into the future with the need for but not limited to Environmental, ATEX and DSEAR training.
Increasingly there will be a need for bespoke training for:-
All of which we are developing or have in place; following a request for bespoke training we are able to bring this in on a very short time frame and have gained national acceptance of our training in general, and industry specific schemes in particular.
We see the need to treat each learner as an individual; going out of our way to provide both individuals and companies with exactly what training they need, tailoring the course to exactly meet their requirements. Many of these courses are practical; learners who need more time to practice should be able to do so. Members of staff are always available to guide, assist or mentor individuals.
Qualified electricians will still need to gain additional qualifications to enable them to demonstrate competence. Increasingly they will come from a wider range of backgrounds and ages. Their ultimate measure of success is a comprehensive understanding of the principles, and practice plus achieving new industry standard qualifications.
Traditional training for this industry has been fragmented and without direction. This, coupled with a lack of formal assessment, has led to a mechanistic approach to training in general.
What is needed is a means of changing what has become custom and practice by significantly improving the acquisition of skills, and the underpinning knowledge that ensures bad practice can be eradicated. What we provide is customised learning for companies and individuals so learners receive relevant training that leads to measurable success.
New challenges exist to provide a complete range of courses from apprentice through to installation inspection and testing, designer, qualified supervisors and owner managers. We have a good combination of excellent staff who have all pulled together to develop training, they all share the ideals that underpin success, treating each learner as an individual, caring about their success and helping them if they experience failure, treating learners, as we would wish to be treated ourselves.
