New skills development centre for safety and health professionals

Safety and health professionals’ capabilities are being scrutinised more closely than ever. So how do you evaluate the skills which are most important to your organisation and, ultimately, the success of the health and safety team?

When it comes to evaluating your team’s capabilities, a skills development centre (SDC) is an effective and proven way.

 The Broadhead Global Skills Development Centre:

  • Assesses and understands the skill set within your teams, and how to develop them – whatever their level or role.
  • Supports the continuing professional development of your team:
    • Identifying where they are
    • Where you want them to be
    • and putting in place the development plans to get them there.
  • Gains valuable insight into how your team works together and its true dynamic.
  • Allows your leadership team to effectively support recruitment and look forward to succession planning.

How does it work?

  • Tailored to each organisation, delegates are put through their paces using case studies, scenarios and challenging tasks relevant to the business, allowing them to showcase their skills.
  • Sessions are delivered by an experienced team on Microsoft Teams or face-to-face.

Here’s what a previous client said:

“The SDC allowed delegates to demonstrate their strengths and identify areas for improvement across a range of skills, both soft and technical, using a scenario developed over the course of the day. Despite the fact that it was busy and challenging, we had incredibly positive feedback from participants.” Global Sustainability Director, Global Manufacturing Company.
