Develop Training is enhancing its presence in Norwich through short courses delivered at JTL’s newest training centre.

Develop trains over 30,000 professionals annually. Courses are run UK-wide from six Develop training centres and two JTL partner centres in Birmingham and Norwich. However, the Group shares over 20 training centres and short courses are run from all of them. Courses can be delivered on customer sites via mobile facilities such as the organisation’s confined spaces vehicle, virtual classroom training, and E-learning courses.
Matthew Gray, Interim Managing Director at Develop, says, “We are pleased to expand our offering in Norwich in partnership with JTL. As part of the wider JTL Group, we have seen a growing demand for training in the area particularly across the Building Services Engineering sector, and especially electricians and heating engineers in the local vicinity.
