How has the Training Academy helped its members?

The Stroma Training Academy offers those in the Building Control sector a fantastic opportunity to improve their training, development and capabilities. Here, you can read more about how we have helped our staff and clients:

"I joined Stroma Building Control to lead our approach to training and development. I’m delighted that we can deliver our Stroma Academy to the industry and support professionals in the Building Control sector to help them develop and progress in their career.

There is a huge amount of experience and expertise amongst already qualified Building Control Surveyors which we can pass on to Assistant and Graduate Surveyors through the Academy model."

Chris McLeod, Head of Training

"People are at the heart of our industry and relationships ultimately drive project work across the construction industry. There must be a succession plan for the industry which finds and trains enough quality Building Control Surveyors, Energy Consultants, Air and Acoustic Engineers to meet the needs of our clients.

Stroma is working hard both independently and with our colleagues and partners to meet these challenges.I'd encourage anyone with a passion to develop their career in construction to contact us about joining one of our forthcoming Academy programmes."

Jonathan Gallie, Group HR Director
