Develop Training, the UK’s leading technical training provider, has been awarded preferred supplier status by both British Telecommunications (BT) and National Grid, with the total value of the contracts expected to be in excess of £1 million.

The BT contract comes as a result of a working relationship spanning eight years, during which Develop Training has delivered Street Works and Confined Spaces training to teams across the UK. Following a review of current suppliers, Develop has been awarded a further contract for the Provision of Training Services through to 2013/14, which will also involve the delivery of Health and Safety training as well as new Trenchless Technology and Cabling courses, due to be launched later this year.

National Grid has worked in partnership with Develop Training to deliver its Technical Training since 2006 and is currently the training provider’s largest customer. The award of the new contract will see more than 18,000 National Grid employees receive specialist Health and Safety training and Technical Training aimed at the full range of Gas Network Activity, a particular area of expertise for Develop as borne out by the contract award.

John Kerr, Utilities Director, said, “Both BT and National Grid are long standing customers of Develop Training and the frameworks that have recently been awarded are testament to the relationships that have developed over time and the results we have achieved working with these key clients during this period.

“We pride ourselves on working closely with our customers to identify specific training needs within their business. From these we can create programmes of training which combines the Technical, Health & Safety and Behavioural elements of a training solution to deliver the range of outcomes required.”
