Our commitment to training and development

We have developed a strategy of ‘growing our own’. This strategy is adopted for all levels of supervisory, management and leadership roles. We also sponsor employees who have the desire for self-development through gaining relevant qualifications. It is our approach to provide further education or skills training to all employees where appropriate and to actively encourage participation in these learning and development activities.
