New GGF Training Committee
The GGF has formed a new Training Committee to replace the GGF Training Forum following the conclusions established in it’s Strategy Review.
The GGF Training Forum has comprised mainly of external training providers, but membership of the Training Committee is now GGF members only and is solely via nomination.
Each Committee Member must be nominated by each Group within the three GGF Executives – Glazing, Home Improvement and Specialist Interest.
Those nominated from each Group will then meet on a quarterly basis to discuss particular training needs for their sector and also to share best practice.
Chairman of the Committee, Kevin Hulin of Mann McGowan Fabrications, stressed the importance of ensuring a fair representation of all GGF Groups:
“Essentially the Committee is closed to external agencies such as sector skill councils and awarding bodies. This will allow GGF Members to debate and reach decisions on training issues without any undue influence.”
The Committee’s main objectives are:
• To identify training needs
• To identify the most appropriate mode of delivery
• To source appropriate provider (s)
• To research potential funding options
