Langley Group’s new social enterprise Langley Training Services has partnered with the National Roof Training Group (NRTG), which acts on behalf of regional training groups to support the roofing industry to access an extensive range of training schemes such as NVQs, apprenticeships and health and safety qualifications.
The two organisations have a shared ambition to promote and stimulate collective training initiatives, unlocking 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 as well as train the next generation.
Neel Bidessie, director of social value and people development at Langley, 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 NRTG, added: “The NRTG 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.”
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.
