Langley Launches Training Service Partnership with the National Roof Training Group
LANGLEY TRAINING SERVICES (LTS) – a new social enterprise within the Langley Group endorsed by the UK government as a main training provider – is forming a national partnership with the National Roof Training Group (NRTG).
The National Roof Training Group is the umbrella organisation for the nationwide regional training groups which support the roofing industry to access a range of training schemes such as NVQs, apprenticeships and health and safety qualifications.
The two organisations say they have a shared ambition to promote and stimulate collective training initiatives. They will unlock barriers to training through the creation of employer-led initiatives providing opportunities for smaller organisations to access government-funded training programmes to upskill their workforce and train the next generation.
In establishing the social enterprise, Langley bolsters its reputation nationally for creating solid foundations for the next generation, both through a range of professional qualifications and an overall approach led by quality and standards.
Training Service Partnership
Neel Bidessie, Director of Social Value and People Development said: “Training is an integral part of the Langley culture. Through our history to date, we’ve earned an industry-renowned reputation for the delivery of high-quality services to support our partners, clients and wider supply chain and this new apprenticeship provision is no different – Langley Training Services is here to support internal employees, existing industry employees, passionate school, and college leavers individuals, and third sector organisations in equal measure.
“Ultimately, this provision leverages Langley’s capacity to improve people’s lives by opening the door to a world of opportunity in a rewarding career path. We’re confident this apprenticeship facility will deliver for the individuals and businesses involved, as well as play an important role in plugging the national skills gap in support of the government’s levelling up agenda.”
Denise Cherry, Chair of the National Roof Training Group said: “The National Roof Training Group is happy to work with Langley Training Services to promote the services they offer to our member companies. The work carried out by the company over the past few years stands as a beacon to others, and having obtained direct government funding, they are ideally placed to continue delivery across the sector. The NRTGs support the excellent work done by manufacturers across roofing disciplines, and together, they are raising the bar for training, especially when delivering to CITB Standards.”
LTS is now open to applications to support the industry with a range of government-funded training schemes. With limited spaces available, applicants are encouraged to register their interest as soon as possible.
