Over the last 12
months we’ve been working hard at identifying and addressing areas of construction where training is inadequate or scarce. We’re fast becoming known as the construction training provider for specialist areas, especially in the roofing and dry lining sectors.
We believe that success in bridging skills gaps is not achieved by offering more of the same but by offering the right type of training, and also by delivering apprenticeships that are more suited to modern methods of working.
It is too easy to assume that skills gaps are just caused by a lack of newcomers, or by school-leavers shunning specific trades. Gaps in training provision are a major factor and, as a training provider, we are keen to bridge these gaps.
Within plastering and dry
We prefer to promote the Interior Systems frameworks (Dry Lining Fixing and Finishing) as the ones more appropriate to the tasks carried out by modern-day operatives (and the skills involved). By adopting more suitable frameworks we aim to fill the skills gaps left by the older, more traditional qualifications.
We have the ability to tailor training provision to the specific needs of each employer and we don’t subscribe to the philosophy that ‘one size fits all’. So if you find that the training provision you currently access is falling short, speak to DMR and we’ll find a skills solution for your business.
