Bespoke leadership and management training to be delivered by Thales UK’s integrated training services provider

London, England: Thales Training & Consultancy, a provider of integrated training services, has been appointed by Network Rail to supply a new suite of bespoke interactive leadership and management training courses and workshops. The contract will see Thales Training & Consultancy manage the administration and delivery of five new training modules to over 2,000 senior roles including programme directors, project managers, asset managers, sponsors and engineers.

 

“Development of the national rail infrastructure requires a clear understanding of systems integration and the importance of whole life cost and effective requirements management. We are also managing a large number of complex, interrelated projects, so effective leadership skills and a systems thinking approach are incredibly important to us,” comments Martin Arter, Programme and Technical Services Director of Network Rail’s Infrastructure Projects division. “Thales Training & Consultancy have worked with us in a strong collaboration involving our Professional Development & Training team and colleagues throughout the business in order to develop a compelling programme that will ensure that our employees have access to the highest quality training tailored directly to their needs, and forming part of our integrated management and technical training portfolio.”

After reviewing a number of learning and development suppliers, Network Rail selected Thales Training & Consultancy because of the strength of its training offering, its bespoke approach to delivery and extensive heritage in the systems engineering sector. Network Rail was especially drawn to Thales Training & Consultancy’s past experience of delivering embedded systems engineering training programmes to Thales UK.

Thales Training & Consultancy will deliver the modules, beginning with the TotalVALUE Awareness and TotalVALUE for Leaders courses, until Q1 2013, after which more of its programmes will be embedded within Network Rail’s business.

Rachel Kay, Business Development Director at Thales Training & Consultancy, says: “Our new partnership with Network Rail is testament to the expertise of our trainers’ capability to create bespoke training solutions. A talented workforce is a necessity in an increasingly competitive market, so we will be working closely with Network Rail to develop a training programme that best serves their employees and strategic requirements.”
