The Buzz

We don’t often have news to share but when we do we will add it to this page. We will also aim to update our spotlight project from time to time, which provides examples of work we have been doing. Government clients we are now on East Shires (and East Midlands) Purchase Order roster, this roster is fully enabled for any government department or associate organisation to be able to buy our services.  In addition we have been given access to Greater London Procurement Portal.

The National Construction College (NCC)

Recent Project

The National Construction College (NCC) –  the training division of CITB – began as a Plant Training School in 1966 delivering training that nobody else could offer.  Since its inception, NCC’s offer has evolved and developed as a response to market needs, expanding its remit substantially.

The College has increased its desire to lead industry training and to promote the UK as a world leader of construction skills. The resulting research programme was aimed at supporting the College in obtaining funding and developing its curriculum for the future, and gaining understanding about the market forces at work.

The research programme consisted of project alignment, stakeholder interviews, depth interviews, group interviews and multi staged quantitative research in order to gather a full range of information to create a business argument for investment, and providing the supporting development of the future of the college.

Despite an extremely challenging time-frame the research was completed on schedule, fully meeting all our objectives which contributed towards a successful business case.  Thank you.

With thanks from Kirsty at NCC.  (thank you for letting us share this project)
