Develop Training, one of the UK’s leading accredited providers of Compliance, Technical, and Safety training, is thrilled to announce the successful acquisition of a significant contract with Northumbrian Water (NWL) for the provision of health and safety training services. The contract, spanning three years with the potential for a further two-year extension, marks a significant milestone for Develop having worked closely with NWL for over 20 years.

Following a competitive bidding process in 2023, Develop ultimately lost the tender to a competitor. However, following a series of issues, the decision to return to Develop was motivated by NWL’s recognition of the exceptional quality and reliability of the training services offered by the training provider.

We are thrilled to once again partner with NWL to deliver a wide-range of health and safety training.” said David Parkes, Regional Account Manager at Develop Training. “This contract renewal is a testament to our team’s dedication to delivering industry leading training programmes that meet and exceed NWL’s expectations.”

Under the terms of the contract, Develop will provide a wide range of health and safety training courses, many of which are tailored to NWL’s specific needs. From basic health and safety to specialist certifications, Develop is committed to equipping NWL employees with the knowledge and skills necessary to maintain a safe and competent work environment.

We chose Develop Training based on their proven track record of delivering industry-leading training programmes,” said John Burluraux, Technical Training Manager at NWL. “We are confident that Develop will continue to deliver the level of excellence and reliability we require to ensure the safety of our workforce.”
