Training For Growth 2022

Now celebrating our 50th year in business, George Nicolson have historically proven our dedication to training for growth throughout the industry. We are pleased to once again promote Scottish Apprenticeship Week taking place between 7th and 11th of March through our website and social media.  This week celebrates the benefits apprenticeships can bring to businesses, individuals and the economy as well as recognising the value work-based learning brings to employers across Scotland.

Through our apprenticeship and young tradesperson’s pathway, we have the ability to develop the skills of our tradespeople for the future. The company is committed to the on-going investment in young people, thus ensuring a continued focus to increase the skill level within our company and indeed the Painting and Decorating industry as a whole.

George Nicolson strongly believe in training for growth throughout our workforce from office based members of staff to site staff, management and directors. The training undertaken covers a wide range of Health & Safety subjects such as Mental Health First Aid, IPAF, PASMA, SMSTS, SSSTS, SCORE and Medical First Aid but to name a few. We also ensure our operatives are kept up-to-date with any relevant changes in legislation through in-house Tool Box Talks.

For the second consecutive year we have also invested in a coaching programme for selected members of site staff. Here they discuss their ambitions, development, communication, set goals and learn new non trade skills.

Throughout 2022, we will continue to focus on the further training and development for all of our workforce.

Young people can be a vital part of any workforce through being ambitious, motivated and eager to learn. Get yourself behind Scottish Apprenticeships:
