tRIIO & Skanska future leaders choose DTL to deliver gas appreciation day
10 May 2018
A group of high-flying young professionals from tRIIO and Skanska Utilities chose Develop Training Ltd (DTL) to provide an insight into gas infrastructure as part of a recent leadership development initiative.
Gas appreciation programme
As a leading provider of operational training and apprenticeships in the gas sector, DTL was selected to give the group a practical lesson in the installation and maintenance of gas mains and related equipment. DTL responded to the request by creating a special one-day gas appreciation programme for the group at our Romford site, one of our seven training centres across the UK. The event was based on DTL’s popular five-day certification course in gas awareness.
Almost 100 people applied for a place on tRIIO’s Junior Leadership Team, a two-year development programme, now in its fifth year. The 11 delegates who were successful in their application have roles ranging from finance to design & planning. Team members take turns to chair a monthly meeting, as well as organising educational visits such as the DTL gas appreciation day.
Bespoke training package
One of the delegates, Hema Sharma, who organised the day, said: “The team found the practical elements of the course really enjoyable. We were able to use equipment and get involved with operational activities that happen on site on a daily basis. It makes you really appreciate the challenges our teams deal with on site, often in extremely difficult conditions. DTL did a great job of organising a bespoke training package, which provided us with an interactive experience to learn and participate in.”
Long standing relationship
Jamie Scott, the trainer on the day, explained: "DTL have a long-standing working relationship with both tRIIO and Skanska so we were thrilled to welcome the group to our Romford site for this unique event. The group happily engaged with all the activities and were a real credit to their employers. I hope they all found the training useful and were able to take what they learnt back to their day to day roles."
