Develop has recently launched its new talent development programme, which seeks to encourage skilled individuals from across the utility sector to become industry leading trainers and help inspire the next generation of talent.
The aim of the campaign is to develop those already working ‘hands on’ in the sector to become inspirational trainers and offers an incentive package. The package includes a £5,000 bonus for all new directly employed trainers from industry, formal training and qualifications such as the Training, Assessment and Quality Assurance (TAQA3) and the Award in Education and Training (AET), alongside the company’s new induction programme and a dedicated, highly experienced programme mentor.
The innovative project named ‘Emerge’ is all about creating new pathways for talented and experienced people in the sector and providing them with the opportunity to consider furthering their career with a move into adult education and training.
Develop is, in particular, seeking to recruit engineers in areas such as electrical and mechanical, New Roads And Street Works (NRSWA), water systems and legionella, gas distribution, the Gas Accredited Certification Scheme (ACS), general health and safety, and management development.
Another part of this trailblazing programme, known as ‘Evolve’, seeks to develop existing trainers by providing mentors, qualifications, and further development opportunities – all with the aim of ensuring Develop’s trainers are industry leading. This project also seeks to help support and address the ageing workforce issues in this sector and aims to plug the skills gap in this area.
