Demonstrating that we offer much more than just secondment to our clients, we recently held an Introduction to Drainage Design seminar at Gateshead Civic Centre as part of our ongoing commitment to our Training Partnership with Gateshead Council.
When Gateshead agreed to second our fist engineering apprentice, Sophie Dawson, we also entered into a partnership and agreed that the training we provide to our Waterman Aspen staff, will also be offered to the client’s own staff. Likewise, any suitable training provided by the client to their own staff, could be offered to our Waterman Aspen staff too.
This training event was attended by 14 delegates, consisting of 10 Waterman Aspen members of staff, 6 of which are seconded into Gateshead, as well as 4 of Gateshead’s own staff. More training opportunities are planned in the future, as we intend to build on the success of this seminar and roll out training in other engineering disciplines too.
