   13 September 2021         News

JTL owned Develop Training is now offering its suite of specially designed short commercial training courses to those in the Building Services Engineering sector. 

Due to a sustained demand throughout the pandemic, the group are delighted to be able to offer a wide range of accredited short courses from Electrical & Mechanical, Confined Spaces, Gas Safety, Leadership & Management and Health & Safety.

Short courses for the Building Services Engineering sector

As one of the UK’s largest providers of work-based training, JTL already train more apprentices than anyone else in the Building Services Engineering sector and are now able to offer a wide portfolio of commercial off-the-shelf and bespoke short courses.

These will further strengthen the learner journey offering to enhance and facilitate CPD across the Building Services Sector.

Industry leaders in apprenticeships and commercial training

The group has also continued its investment in Develop’s centres with extensive refurbishments at both York and Derby to create centres of training excellence.

As industry leaders in their respective fields (apprenticeships and commercial training) this strategic improvement in the combined offering will create greater course provision based on quality, cementing their joint reputations for excellence.

Unrivalled expertise

Paul McGuire, Chief Operating Officer at JTL, said: “It’s important that we adapt and evolve the group’s provision to ensure we can continue to offer high quality training with great results. By consolidating our provision in this way with Develop Training, we will be able to guarantee unrivalled expertise and infrastructure across the board. It’s a win-win for everyone.”

Playing to our strengths

John Kerr, Managing Director at Develop Training, said: “This announcement is great news for Develop and for our clients, as JTL’s position and knowledge in the apprenticeship arena can only result in an improvement in provision and an increase in the scalability of what Develop could offer in the past. Likewise, taking on the management of other commercial training courses from JTL makes perfect sense in terms of efficiencies within the group allowing Develop to play to its strengths to deliver the results that our customers expect.”
