At Leyland, we understand that investing in our team's development is essential for the continued success of our business. That's why we take pride in our Training Academy – a dedicated initiative designed to nurture excellence and build essential skills among our colleagues.
The Training Academy serves as a dynamic hub where individuals at all levels of the business can access comprehensive training programs tailored to their specific roles and career aspirations. Whether one is involved in customer service, operations, or management, our academy aims to empower each participant with the knowledge and skills needed to thrive in their respective positions.
We have created a Learning and Development Training Room in Acton, to offer the best and most supportive learning environment possible. From a dedicated Till/Store setup to a great refreshment area, it really is the best place to develop your knowledge and skills.
Hosting induction weeks, our newest colleagues get the chance to learn the skills needed in a simulated and supportive environment and are set up to be their best from the minute they land on the shop floor.
But it doesn't stop there. First Aid, Managers Workshops and a whole host of events take place in Acton. So whether you are a new starter or have been with the business 25 years, we'll be welcoming you very soon.
Key features of the Training Academy include:
Customised Training Programs: We recognise that different roles require different skill sets. Therefore, our academy offers a variety of customised training programs that address the unique needs of each department. From product knowledge to customer service excellence, our courses cover a wide range of topics.
Hands-On Learning: We believe in learning by doing. Our academy emphasises practical, hands-on experiences to ensure that participants can apply their newfound knowledge directly to their daily tasks. This approach not only enhances skill development but also boosts confidence.
Industry Experts and Instructors: To deliver top-notch training, we collaborate with industry experts and seasoned instructors. This ensures that our colleagues receive guidance from professionals who bring real-world experience and insights to the training sessions.
Continuous Learning Culture: The Training Academy fosters a culture of continuous learning. We understand that the business landscape is ever-evolving, and staying ahead requires ongoing education. Therefore, our academy regularly updates its training modules to reflect the latest industry trends and best practices.
Career Development Opportunities: The academy goes beyond immediate job requirements, offering career development opportunities for those aspiring to take on greater responsibilities within the company. Through leadership training, we aim to cultivate the future leaders of Leyland.
In essence, the Leyland Training Academy embodies our commitment to investing in the growth and success of our team. By providing accessible, relevant, and hands-on training, we empower our colleagues to excel in their roles and contribute to the overall success and excellence of our business.
