BWB Academy Programme

24 January 2014

Like many engineering consultancies, BWB put a great focus on providing technical training. Unlike many engineering consultancies, BWB also put a great focus on providing non-technical learning to equip our people with softer skills that could help them developing in to well-rounded managers. We provide this learning via our BWB Academy Programme.

The BWB Academy Programme a challenging and participative programme that acknowledges the environment in which we all work, with a requirement to have effective communication, planning, business and people skills as well as a good deal of self-awareness.  The BWB Academy Programme is designed to be accessible by all our people wanting to increase their all-round understanding of themselves and BWB. There are no formal entry requirements except the desire to learn, to be open to change and be able to attend the programme and participate in the allocated assignments.

The BWB Academy Programme is designed to run at 3 levels:- Bronze, Silver and Gold, which tackle progressively complex managerial issues.  To date we have rolled out the Bronze Programme to 3 groups, with the launch of the first silver Programme in spring 2014.

The programme is delivered via a series of modules, grouped around our core business improvement areas of Strategy, Business Growth, Efficiency, Finance and People.

The Bronze Award Modules include:-
- Understanding the Client journey
- Communication Skills
- Introduction to Finance
- Making Sense of Marketing
- Personal Effectiveness
- Contracts and Contract Management
- Introduction to Managing Others
- Succeed in All You Do

The BWB Academy Programme is just one of the many reasons that makes BWB Consulting a great place to work! To find out about how to join BWB, be sure to check out our vacancies on our careers page.
