Thus far, 25 operatives from Bell Group’s Birmingham branch have taken and passed their PTS training through INFRA Skills.
Bell Group is the largest dedicated commercial painting and decorating contractor in the UK, both in terms of their geographical coverage and their directly employed workforce. Bell Group provide industrial painting and maintenance services, which is supplied from their specialist teams located throughout the country.
All Bell Group staff are supported with their learning and development allowing them work on a variety of projects. Due to the nature of the works for West Midland Trains (formerly London Midland), it was imperative that they had Personal Track Safety qualifications. With the expansion of the team at Bell Group Birmingham and those delivering on the contract for West Midland Trains all operatives have to have Personal Track Safety qualifications – this was timely as others were due for renewal. Because of this requirement Bell Group contacted INFRA Skills Ltd to facilitate the booking for staff onto both Personal Track Safety Initial and Re-cert courses as well as their Industry Common Induction.
