Building on Our Quality Assurance with Training and Accreditation
News | 20.08.20 | 0 comments
At Edgeley Construction, professional excellence and staff fulfilment are central to Edgeley Construction’s success, so we invest in the professional development and support of our multi-disciplinary team which enables us to offer clients an enviable level of skills and expertise. Continuous improvement and training are core to our client service and people development strategies, enabling us to qualify for housing association frameworks and future growth of our client base.
As part of our commitment to creating a diverse environment of knowledge and expertise, we have embarked on a new, company-wide training process that involves everyone; from our apprentices, right through to our leadership management team. Each member of staff will have their training needs assessed, and this will be a two-way process that takes account of the company’s requirements and the career goals of the individual. A training matrix will then be put in place for every employee with training goals for the year.
A process that will enable us to support our team in furthering their skills and qualifications, whilst building the knowledge and capabilities available to our clients. Training will be delivered through a combination of programmes provided by national industry bodies, such as the CITB, CIOB and RICS, along with bespoke courses from training consultancies, that will encourage our staff to progress through recognised training routes, that will support lifelong learning. We will also leverage the experience within Edgeley Construction to develop training modules in-house, based on our proven processes and best practice.
Alongside our investment in training, we are also working towards enhancing our accreditations, and are currently working towards becoming a Safety Schemes in Procurement accredited contractor. Looking further ahead, we are also beginning the process of ISO 9001 accreditation, which will provide a formal framework to recognise the work we’ve been doing on our management systems.
James Brett, Director, said: “Our aim is always to be a best-in-class partner for our clients. We have looked at every aspect of our business to consider where we can build on our experience with defined processes. Our next steps in training and accreditation will continue to bring together our investment in technology, systems, processes and procedures and people to offer added value throughout the design and construction process and continue to drive digitisation across the business.”
