Main contractor, Clark Contracts, has achieved Approved Training Organisation (ATO) status and will now be delivering a suite of accredited training modules to staff in house.
Now approved by the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB), Clark Contracts’ in house Health, Safety, Environment and Quality (HSEQ) team can deliver a number of courses with the plans already in place for ‘Risk Management’ and ‘Abrasive Wheels’ to be the first topics covered.
Clark Contracts employs over 250 staff and has invested £500k in training through its Academy in the last 12 months. The company also employed a dedicated Learning and Development Manager to further enhance its training procedures.
Gordon Cunningham, Managing Director, Clark Contracts, said: “This new ATO status will allow us to streamline our training plans and enhance our in house skills to support our growing demand for training”.
Over 20% of Clark Contracts’ employees are studying towards formal qualifications at college or university. The organisation has also spent an additional £11,300 on training two mental health first aiders, mental health champions across the company and mental health awareness sessions with further investment planned for the future.
