Tradelink hopefuls enter frame Academy


Having long recognised the importance of training and the subsequent benefits a multi-skilled workforce can bring, Tradelink, the trade fabricator celebrating 20 years experience of understanding installers’ needs, is now delighted to announce the official opening of its new Academy. The new facility is run by Assurance Manager Dave Gash and Quality Engineer Kevin Howard with the purpose of supporting the fabricator’s ongoing Producer training on the fabricator’s own premises in line with its commitment to World Class Manufacturing.

Producers are trained at Tradelink’s on-site facility in both the theory and the practice of specific production processes, such as Welding or door assembly. A pre-determined syllabus is used for each manufacturing process and its related tasks, and this in turn feeds into the Tradelink skills-matrix system.

Each course offers applicants the chance to take part in practical assessments as well as the final written exam in order to gain that all important hands-on experience, and successful participants are awarded with a certificate upon proving they have attended and passed the course.

Managing Director Jim Moody comments on the facility: “We are delighted to officially open our new Academy. As a World Class Manufacturing company, training is incredibly important to us and now we have a formal training facility on our own premises we can provide real structure to this process. Our commitment to the Academy serves to reinforce our approach to training and, of course, more skills tend to equal better rewards, so it’s no great surprise that the Academy already has a waiting list just one month after opening!”
