Long-term employee awarded training and development certificate

Longley Concrete is delighted to announce that Works Foreman/Training Officer, Andrew Collomosse has successfully achieved his certificate in learning and development from Wakefield College, where he was taught the best ways to deliver both his knowledge and experience. The course also helped Andy to understand the key principles of training and how best to impart his knowledge.

Having been at the company for over four decades now, Andy has already helped members of the production department with their knowledge of how to stress precast concrete floor beams that Longley Concrete produce for use in beam and block flooring.

An expert in the field of prestressed concrete beams, Andy officially received his certificate in late summer this year. Moving forward, the business is considering utilising his newfound learning and development skills to teach employees about manual handling.

However he applies this expertise, everyone at Longley Concrete is sure it will be a success and wishes Andy well with actually putting it into practice in the workplace.

Commenting on the certificate from Wakefield College, Andy says:

“The certificate has allowed me to train the team in the best ways to prestress beams. It has given me the confidence to get across my skills and experiences gained by working for Longley Concrete for over 40 years.”

As a family-run organisation that celebrated its 70th anniversary in 2017, Andy’s achievement provides even more evidence of Longley Concrete’s determination to improve year on year. In their most recent news article for instance, it was announced that they had been approved for membership of the CPD Certification Service. More information on this can be found by clicking here.
