R&W Academy


In a previous news story we told you how our 4th cohort of apprentices are now out on site and are doing well. Our apprenticeship scheme is just one example of how the R&W Academy supports members of the R&W family. We developed the R&W Academy because we believe we are our people.

We not only focus on recruiting talented and motivated people but we are also passionate about supporting them throughout their careers so they can achieve their full potential. The R&W Academy provides career development and opportunities for every member of staff – recently four members of the R&W family graduated after two years of hard work and studying. R&W are proud to have supported them to  achieve their HNCs in Civil Engineering.


More about the R&W Academy

The R&W Academy was launched to nurture, encourage and train our talented team.

We are always looking for those individuals that possess that extra ingredient that, with the right environment, the correct development and the appropriate opportunities to excel, will make the most exceptional team members, in addition to having that all important R&W ‘can do’ attitude.

Our dedicated Training Team ensures that our operations staff have all the necessary safety and technical qualifications they need, and we actively encourage everyone to participate in appropriate courses and work-shadowing for their continual professional development. We support staff through part-time higher education courses, such as engineering degrees, higher national certificates and diplomas.

There are no limits to the levels you can reach. You can work your way up through our supportive organisation. Even if you embark on one path and then decide to take an alternate route, R&W will work hard to provide you with the diversity you’re looking for and an environment in which to succeed.
