Training

The training programmes of all staff, from the Managing Director to on site apprentices have been a constant focus of the AD Construction Group Ltd. In April 2000 AD were delighted to be awarded the Investors in People accreditation, which we retain to this day. The award reflected the commitment and dedication towards the training and constant development of our workforce.

We operate an extensive apprentice recruitment and training programme and currently employ a large number of people who have successfully completed the programme and can continue to supply the high level of service that our company and employees are dedicated to providing our clients.

It is company policy to seek to add benefits to local areas when working for specific public sector bodies. We would seek to benefit the community by providing a range of localised opportunities to include the following;

  • Provide employment via our existing apprenticeship program run scheme that aims to provide opportunities to local school leavers and job seekers.
  • To advertise locally to employ recruit and retain local people who live in the area and employ them on permanent terms & conditions.
  • To strive to source supplies locally whenever possible.

We have much experience in achieving these goals and have many staff members in full time employment that originally joined our company on localised apprentice schemes.

To reinforce our commitment to staff training and development and ensure we maintain our Investors in People accreditation we produce an annual training plan. This is recorded onto a bespoke AD Personnel Training database, which is audited annually by the C.I.T.B.

To ensure our staff receive appropriate training and development we have in place a staff appraisal system, staff participate in six monthly appraisals, where performance is reviewed and a range of targets agreed and set for the next six-month period. The targets agreed are aligned to company business and service plan objectives, which in turn are driven by client contract requirements.

During these appraisals specific needs may be identified i.e. training on new health and safety legislation, new forms of contract documentation, new work methods or materials, new client requirements etc - these are feed into the annual training plan and training programmed. The annual training plan also includes a range of refresher training. The training identified within the plan is provided from various sources, i.e. Colleges for HNC, ONC, NVQ, in house coaching and external training providers for issues such as Health and Safety, Customer care and Diversity and information technologies.
