News: Bramall training programme wins top award


Building Talk report that Rotherham based Bramall Construction, part of the Keepmoat Group, has won a prestigious National Training Award for a pioneering programme aimed at plugging skills gaps in the construction industry. Working with with Wakefield-based Chevin Housing Association, fifty trainees were able to learn construction skills. Of the 50 trainees who completed the training, 10 students made rapid progress and were fast-tracked into high quality craftsman careers. The scheme allowed 42 trainees from Bramall to achieve NVQ Level 2 qualifications, and 15 to achieve NVQ Level 3 grades. In total, 45 have gone into full-time jobs. Julie Fuller, Training Officer for Bramall, told Building Talk: "This superb partnership between Bramall and Chevin has now been rightly recognised for its contribution to boosting skills and training in the construction industry." Run by UK Skills on behalf of the Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills, the National Training Awards are universally recognised as being the number one in their field. Simon Bartley, UK Skills Chief Executive, said: "The National Training Awards provide tangible examples of the positive effects of investment in high quality training. It's clear that individuals and organisations who invest in high quality training reap the benefits. Training not only increases performance and generates growth but it fosters team building and leads to the broader success of the organisation."
