Construction Skills People (CSP) implemented a staff-training programme, The training was delivered under the Skills Support for the Workforce programme on behalf of Serco. CSP performed a training needs analysis and identified funded training opportunities, co-financed by the European Social Fund and the Education and Skills Funding Agency. 35 OES employees undertook a Level 2 NVQ - Removal of Hazardous Waste – Licensed Asbestos (Construction) training course.
The training benefitted the organisation and staff, supporting them to achieve CSCS cards, which are the construction industry’s skills competency scheme. CSCS cards are a legitimate way of proving their staff’s skills and knowledge of working safely on site and enable their business to be more competitive when tendering for new projects.
Bobbie Caswell from Omega Environmental Services Ltd stated, “We would definitely utilise the ESF Skills Support for the Workforce programme again in the future and would recommend Construction Skills People to deliver that training.”
