Training & Developing Your People in the Nuclear & Construction Sectors

“The only thing worse than training your employees and having them leave is not training them and having them stay”…Henry Ford 

Training is a critical part of a company’s success and particularly so in people focused industries such as construction and in highly regulated sectors such as nuclear. Whether your need is setting up a new systematically derived training programme, or a one day course in leadership, we can provide skilled experts to support your training needs.


Our consulting team work with companies to analyse competence baselines, undertake gap analysis, design & deliver bespoke and accredited training programmes, and measure and report effectiveness of these programmes. No two businesses are the same so we offer a range of options depending on the business and individual needs. 


Training Requirements on the Hinkley Point C Project and the UK Nuclear Sector
