One of GQA Qualifications’ approved training centres has helped to boost the skills of staff at Lancashire Double Glazing Group. Twelve employees at the large home improvement company have successfully completed NVQ level 2 courses in ‘Fabrication of Glass Supporting Structures’ with Absolute Training Solutions.

Staff were presented with their NVQ certificates by Lancashire Double Glazing Group’s Joint Managing Director, Vivienne Brunskill and Production Director, Mark Noble. The company’s two directors agree that practical training leading to GQA qualifications is playing a key role in helping to develop the careers of their staff.

Vivienne Brunskill said:

“We have been trading for over thirty years. Like any company, a major contributor to our success lies in the calibre of our workforce. That’s why we’re very happy to invest in the high quality training provided by a GQA Qualifications’ approved centre. Congratulations to all those members of our team who were successful in gaining their NVQ level 2 certificates.”

“I am very happy with the outcome of the training, and it’s great to see a company like this invest in their staff and promote the benefits of training and formal GQA qualifications.”
