The article aims to describe how R&D Construction is seeking to ensure that its own employees and those of its customers benefit from tailored courses that address their specific business needs and allow them to work towards relevant accreditations.
The background to the training, the form it takes and the results it is achieving are explained in the article.
It is contended that UK government attempts to cut red tape for business are shifting attitudes to training, with employers playing a greater role in ensuring that their employees have the necessary accreditations.
The value of a partnership arrangement that R&D Construction has forged with training provider C&C Training is highlighted.
Companies still need to train their workforce to a relevant standard, even when they may no longer be required by law to do so.
The article shows how a UK construction company is attempting to gain the maximum advantage from the money it spends on training.
