Training and Development

Hydram Sheet Metalwork takes its commitment to staff training and development very seriously.

Skilled metalworkers

Currently 98% of the shop floor employees have achieved NVQ Level 2 or higher.  External training courses supplement continuous in-house training; employees are encouraged to add to their skills.  Of particular importance to the business is training to reduce/remove non-value added activities, and supporting a continuous improvement culture across all functions of the business.

Metalworking apprentice training centre

Hydram began delivering its own engineering apprenticeship programme in 2011 in its dedicated Apprentice Training Centre delivering in-house training to NVQ level 3, being recognised by one of the leading awarding bodies for manufacturing and technical qualifications, EAL.  Delivering training in-house ensures that apprentices learn skills that fully suit the sheet metalworking environment.  The company employs a full time Training Manager who oversees the Apprenticeship Programme.

Hydram also runs a graduate scheme and has taken on graduates from Durham University and Newcastle University.
