City training expanded with skills courses

A range of short courses is now on offer at a new training centre in Norwich.

Work-based learning provider JTL Group has partnered with sister company Develop Training, experts in compliance, technical and safety, to run the courses.

The Norwich facility was unveiled late last year, with £1.5 million invested by JTL Group in response to increasing demand in the area.

The specialised facility aims to bridge the existing skills gap in the sector and facilitate the training of electrical, plumbing, and heating professionals in the city.

Develop will be responsible for the delivery of short courses to those working in the building services engineering sector.

These include courses in low and high voltage electrical, gas ACS, confined spaces, working at height, HVAC, and general health & safety training, alongside a wider range of training in the utilities and estates & facilities management industries.

Develop trains over 30,000 professionals annually. Courses are run UK-wide from six Develop training centres and two JTL partner centres in Birmingham and Norwich. The Group also shares over 20 training centres where short courses are delivered.

 Many courses can also be delivered on customer sites via mobile facilities such as the organisations’ confined spaces vehicle, or via their virtual classroom training, and their wide range of e-learning courses.

Matthew Gray, Interim Managing Director at Develop, said: “We are pleased to expand our offering in Norwich in partnership with JTL. As part of the wider JTL Group, we have seen a growing demand for training in the area particularly across the Building Services Engineering sector, and especially electricians and heating engineers in the local vicinity.

“By enhancing our presence in Norwich, we look forward to delivering short courses from the centre and ensuring that industry professionals in the local area receive training of the highest quality.”
