Training & Development

Shaylor Group commits heavily to staff training through a number of routes:

  • Shaylor Group Academy
    2017 saw the launch of the Shaylor Group Academy, designed to assist employees in the advancement of their construction skills and knowledge. Sponsored and funded by the Black Country Skills Factory and the Skills Funding Agency, the Academy provides a range of modules with lessons including co-ordination and management of design, planning skills, commercial awareness and work packages. The Academy is aimed at our apprentices, trainees and assistants however more experienced employees are welcome to attend specific modules relevant to their positions to assist in continuous learning and development.
  • Development in the Community
    Alongside assisting in the development of our employees, we also engage with local schools, colleges, universities and institutions to help prepare individuals for working life and give them the experience needed to make a difference. We understand that supporting employment through utilising local suppliers and providing work experience, trainee and apprenticeship opportunities will have a positive impact on the local economy alongside the construction industry as a whole.
