Our workforce is A.C. Beck’s most important resource.
A.C. Beck uses a core competencies matrix to identify what type of training each employee needs – not only to comply with site regulations and requirements, but also to take the company forward. So, in addition to standard courses like IPAF, PASMA and CSCS, we also run in-house training programmes developed specifically for AC Beck staff.
As well as building knowledge, skills and experience, our approach to training makes a tremendous difference to workforce morale – increasing motivation, loyalty and teamwork. It’s one of the reasons why A.C. Beck has so many long serving employees. And why our reputation on site is so strong.
Over the past 10 years, A.C. Beck has supported more than 20 apprenticeships in painting, decorating and exterior renovation. We take on two new apprentices every year. Each A.C. Beck apprentice follows a 2 year programme, with the option to extend their training to a third year. We also give all our apprentices the opportunity to attend college.
Following every Christmas break we organise a full day for Health and safety and teamwork training in conjunction with Dulux. This is a chance to refresh all operatives for Health & Safety responsibilities, asbestos awareness and sustainability.
For all established and training foremen, the company will facilitate training for SSSTS, SMSTS & First Aid training. Office based surveyors have the opportunity to enroll in further education schemes.
Every operative has the opportunity to receive training for works which will help build their training matrix profile. Including PASMA, IPAF, RepairCare, SMSTS & DOFF. The company is always looking to new accreditations to improve the overall service.
In collaboration with training schools and major painting manufacturers, staff can get training for spraying, wallpapering, broken colour work & gilding.
