Training

The training requirements of all staff are reviewed annually. 

External training courses are generally used to bring new skills and knowledge into the Practice. 

Internal training is Project orientated with the intention of generating interest and focus on the core skills which are necessary to solve the particular problems that the Project presents.  The knowledge and skills built up in this way are then more readily assimilated and understood allowing staff to manage increasingly more complex jobs.

Where Projects require particular specialist skills which cannot be resourced in house, staff are given additional training and/ or specialist sub-consultants/ sub contractors are employed to ensure the technical standard of the company is not compromised.

All members of staff are also encouraged to extend their knowledge by attending forums and talks organised by the Institutions of Structural and Civil Engineers at local branch meetings.  These functions also permit a wider level of debate with their piers within the construction industry.
