Developing Skill


Thomas Telford Training is giving newly graduated civil engineers the chance to develop their construction skills with the launch of a five day Graduate Development Programme. The programme has been designed to give practical information and guidance on the construction industry to young professionals working for consultants and contractors. The course consists of three core modules which are studied before students select training specific to their individual needs from a range of subjects to fill two further days. Day one deals with standard forms of contracts, day two looks at the construction process, and modern approaches to construction management are studied during the third day of the core programme.

TTT Marketing Manager Malcolm Morley says: 'The course is aimed at graduates who have been working in the industry for a short while and have already embarked on a training programme with their employers.' The non-residential based course will be held on 23-25 November 1999 at the Building Research Establishment at Watford. TTT: (0171) 665 2426.

Employers want young engineers to become chartered as their quaifications demonstrate a company's quality to clients.
