A E Yates Ltd operate within a formal Training Policy and have maintained the Investors in People Standard since 2004. We have an experienced core of operatives and staff and have a formal Training Programme that has been approved by CITB Construction Skills for Grant Aid.

Within this programme we have a Training Plan for each and every employee.

Health, Safety, Quality & Environmental Training sits at the heart of out company training and development programme and covers employees at all levels within the organisation.

The majority of our training budget is spent on construction based training to ensure the health, safety and welfare ofour employees e.g. confined spaces, first aid at work, abrasive wheels, on obtaining NVQ's and CSCS / CPCS cards; and on training to comply with the legislative requirements and industry standards e.g. New Roads and Street Works, Appointed Persons for Lifting Operations, EUSR Utility, CITB Construction Skills, Electrical Contractors ECS1 H&S Assessment, Welder Training and Development etc.

Staff are encouraged to achieve academic qualifications by arrangement. These are funded by the Company and candidates undertake their studies on a day release or evening class basis so as to simultaneously gain valuable, related experience.

Nearly all our agents and supervisors have been put through either the CITB 5 day site managers safety training scheme or the 2 day CITB site supervisors course. Additionally, our Contracts Directors and our Contracts Managers are all First Aiders.

All our operational staff and operatives have been offered the opportunity to undertake NVQ's. We are currently signed up with 3 training providers. NVQ's have been carried out in the following:

  • Specialised Plant and Machinery Operations, Level 2, for all holders of Red CPCS cards
