Industry training leader 20|20 Business Insight has won the Engineering Construction Industry Training Board’s (ECITB) covered Training Provider of the Year title, at its annual training and development awards event in London.
The prestigious ECITB awards, held at London’s Grand Connaught Rooms, celebrated the achievements and successes of individuals, companies and training providers in the engineering construction industry.
The engineering construction industry is the driving force of the UK’s energy and processing sectors, with a workforce of more than 90,000 – and as many as 42,000 more required over the next ten years as new build, decommissioning and ongoing repair and maintenance projects are mobilised.
20|20 developed its Certificate in Project Controls with the ECITB, to provide formal training and qualifications to industrial project managers, increasing their capability in project management and encouraging the use of best practice to improve efficiencies in the energy, construction and manufacturing sectors.
Tony Marks, CEO of 20|20, said: “This award is superb recognition of the success of the Certificate in Project Controls, which we developed with the ECITB. It underlines our unwavering commitment to providing the most relevant and appropriate training options for our clients.
“Our partnership with the ECITB has resulted in this accredited City & Guilds course becoming a crucial part of project management across the sectors, setting standards and allowing companies to develop real consistency in project controls.
“The vision of the ECITB and the 20|20 team to drive the development of this course is a testament to the kind of joint focus industry has in the UK, to deliver best-practice knowledge and shared standards for the industry – and has already been taken up by a large number of major international corporates.”
20|20’s programme includes five ECITB Project Management-focussed courses, with delivery tailored toward helping candidates achieve success through learning integrated with professional development programmes as well as those in higher and further education.
“It is paramount to the industry’s future success that we attract people to the many varied career opportunities across all sectors. These awards are all part of raising the profile of the industry and showcasing the incredible work that is so often unseen but is critical in keeping Britain powered,” said ECITB chief executive, David Edwards.
