Huge congratulations to our staff for upskilling and completing professional development courses
04 Jun 2021

They’ve done it!

Here at SWG Group we are committed to training not only the workforce of the future through the SWG Academy, but also the workforce of now.

We are passionate about giving our staff the opportunity to learn. Staff development, upskilling and promotion is something we really value.

And this month we have a whole lot of good news as many certificates have arrived in the post! 

We’re thrilled to be celebrating the huge achievements of many of our staff and contractors who have gained professional qualifications recently.

We’d like to give a special mention to:

  • Jason who is completing an NVQ Level 5 Retrofit Manager course
  • Charlie and Rebecca who have completed an NVQ Level 2 Retrofit Coordinator course
  • Jeremy who has completed the Chartered Management Institute Level 4 in Leadership
  • Jacqui who has completed a Postgraduate certificate in Leadership, and Shaun and Julian who are currently working towards this qualification
  • Brodie, who is currently working towards a CIOB Certificate in Site Management

16 members of staff and subcontractors have also completed NVQ Level 2 qualifications, in partnership with Construction Skills People Limited in areas such as ground works, plastering and carpentry.

Achieving these certificates, especially alongside work, is no mean feat. They have each proved to be dedicated and determined to learn new skills and improve or formalise the ones they already have.

Some traders start work in the construction industry without professional qualifications but with a lot of life experience. Or throughout their career they try different trades and have fantastic skills, but no formal qualification. 

We want to give these people the opportunity to have the certificate saying they are a professional at these skills - we encourage everyone we work with to do this.

And we’re also ensuring our company is ready for the changing face of the construction industry. Retrofitting is an area we are investing heavily in, as new laws come into effect about the standard of properties and this comes into focus, we put it at the forefront of our business and staff training programme.

As new products and services are released, such as SIKA roofing, we ensure SWG Group staff are trained in how to use the best products and get the best out of them, so our clients receive the highest standard of work.

We are sure it won’t be long before we have yet more people to say ‘well done’ to, but for now it’s a huge congratulations to everyone involved!
