We want all of our employees, to reach their fullest potential. In order to assist our employees in doing so, we offer comprehensive training and apprentice opportunities.
VolkerHighways is committed to developing our employees via internal and external courses, complemented with site experience, to become professionally qualified at the earliest possible opportunity.
Through the VolkerWessels UK training academy our fully committed training team are always available to explore any development needs with our employees. The training team also delivers leadership and front line management development programmes accredited by the Institute of Leadership and Management and accounting (ACA) traineeships accredited by the Institute of Chartered Accountants.
Further education is always supported and professional qualifications are offered to employees looking to further develop their skills in the workplace. A number of our operating companies also run commercial and civil engineering graduate programmes. For further information about training and development in our operating companies please visit their individual websites.
VolkerHighways apprenticeship scheme runs across our specialist Projects division and Highways Maintenance Contracts in London.
It offers trainees a combination of on-site training and assessment with classroom-based learning, to bring them to NVQ Level 2 in General Construction Operations (GCO), and to gain their Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) card and New Roads & Street Works Act (NRSWA) ticket .
Our apprentices attend the National Construction College at Cathall Road, North London on a 4 week rotation between the college and site.
After successfully completing their two-year apprenticeship, the apprentices have the opportunity to continue their employment within the Highway Services Division.
