Earlier last year, Dessian Scotland implemented industry accredited training for its workers, as part of its commitment to enhancing the work environment for employees.
Cumbernauld-based Dessian Scotland is a fabricator, distributor, glazer and installer of REHAU windows, working with a plethora of customers, from local authorities and trade installers to home builders and DIY customers.
Last year, the company partnered up with local training organisation RT Resource, to deliver SVQ certified study programmes to improve the skill set its glazier and fitting teams.
Dessian Scotland’s team of four factory based glaziers possess nearly a century’s worth of experience between them coming in to the industry straight from school; however none previously held an industry-recognised qualification.
Over the last year, the glaziers have worked towards a level 3 Modern Apprenticeship in the Fabrication of Glass Supporting Systems.
All the training was carried out on site and within working hours, with the courses fully funded.
It was also arranged for the fitting teams to study towards an SVQ level 3 in Fenestration Installation and Surveying, as it is important for the latest regulations to be adhered to, in order to deliver a supreme service to customers.
Training programmes for new recruits have also been taken on, as part of a North Lanarkshire Council incentive to get young people into work.
John McDermott, general manager at Dessian Scotland, said: “We are committed to the training and development of our staff, and over the last year we have been able to offer them the opportunity to earn a nationally recognised qualification for their skills while they work.
“We believe this training initiative has not only ensured our staff feel valued and invested in at Dessian, but we have also ensured they have a well-rounded practical and theoretical knowledge of our products so are better placed to help our customers with any queries they might have.”
