The R&W Academy
We are our people. We not only focus on recruiting talented and motivated people but we support them throughout their careers so they can achieve their full potential and work within the philosophy of the R&W Way. In addition to ensuring their safety and well-being our goal is to provide career development and opportunities for every member of staff.
The R&W Academy was launched to nurture, encourage and train our talented team. In addition, we are always looking to recruit and support 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.
We are also committed to the recruitment of apprentices, graduates and undergraduates seeking work placements and are particularly proud of our involvement in the development of CETC. CETC is a new Civil Engineering Training Centre based in Hampshire, which offers unique and industry-focused apprenticeship programmes and professional training courses to develop the next generation of civil engineers and groundworkers.
The Centre was established in September 2017 in response to a county-wide skills shortage resulting from an aging workforce, a boom in new-build projects and current insufficient levels of training, factors that were identified to be hindering civil engineering growth and expansion in the south of England. To tackle the problem head-on, a group of 11 local civil engineering employers set up the Solent Civil Engineering Employer Group (SCEEG) in conjunction with Fareham College to create a training programme that would address these issues, support the construction industry across the region and beyond, and have a positive economic impact through creating more job opportunities.
