Training & Innovation

RoofingTraining002 GMG Group is committed to the highest standards of training for our workforce.

The group have developed an innovative new vocational qualification for our apprentices which will assist them to qualify in a timeframe and environment that is particularly suited to their needs. For those that choose to go further it will not stop there, opportunities for moving up the company ladder are in place to facilitate that.

Some of our more experienced trades people and former apprentices have been trained as assessors to help our present apprentices get through their training.

The GMG group has a system of continual professional development in place for all staff, which offers the opportunity to an entry level employee to graduate to management level.

All of the Groups management team have or are undergoing training designed to theirs and the business needs, this will underpin the range of knowledge available within the Group. This is designed to make the team more flexible, which makes the whole more than just a sum of the parts, but a well oiled and nimble company machine.

The Group has future plans for our own training Academy which if we can get the funding package to stack up, will not only be used by the Group but the wider industry as well.

The Group are also working in partnership with a number of schools, the Academy training on offer will suit school kids and help them to decide if the industry is right for them. It will also let us see if they are right for our part of the industry or we recommend to other companies who can fulfil their ambitions more appropriately.

RoofingTraining001The Group played a valuable role on the Developing Scotland’s Young Workforce investigation and final report, which we wee happy to see reflected a lot of our views.

The Group’s commitment to developing young people has been recognised by an Investors in Young People award. The Group is happy to achieve these but we are more pleased by the fact we develop young people into active citizens and an exceptional workforce.

Strathclyde University were suitably impressed when they used the GMG Group as a case study in 2015 for their publication ‘Innovation Works…improving work & workplaces’.
