International legal business DWF is taking up a new government learning initiative by delivering enhanced training to a number of its managers in facilities management.
Specialist provider Jigsaw Training is working with 17 people from across DWF’s UK offices in the Facilities Management Supervisor Level 3 course, as part of the new Apprenticeship Levy scheme.
The 21-month course, delivered from DWF’s Manchester hub, provides additional skills training in areas including managing contractors, procurement, building maintenance, health and safety, project management and budgeting.
DWF has a long-standing commitment to its apprenticeship scheme, offering a range of legal and non-legal apprenticeships across its UK locations, and this is the second year that the business has started an intake of apprentices specifically across its facilities teams.
Karl Warmbold, Director of Facilities and Property at DWF, said: “Jigsaw Training left us in no doubt that it has the necessary experience and resources to offer our people the very best training in this field, and we very much look forward to working closely with them. Our people are already enthused about the benefits this will bring them.”
James Blackhurst, managing director of Jigsaw Training, said: “The team at DWF will benefit from enhanced training in these core areas to enable them to progress in their roles. We look forward to seeing the outcomes.”
