Gibbs & Dandy are working to help build the UK construction industry with our new Entrepreneurship Foundation. This is a new education scheme launched in 2018, which provides free training and support for tradespeople about running a small business. 12 tradespeople from across the country benefit from face-to-face sessions and online learning in partnership with the Institute of Enterprise and Entrepreneurship (IOEE), Construction Industry Training Board (CITB), and Supply Chain Sustainability School.
The scheme will cover a wide range of core business skills, from finance and team management to marketing and social media. It will also provide each customer with a dedicated mentor from our parent company. The mentor will offer guidance on issues faced within their individual business.
Gibbs & Dandy Managing Director Neil Lawrence said: “Our customers are experts in building, however we understand that building a business is an entirely different proposition, requiring skills and insight that can be hard to come by. “At Gibbs & Dandy we are passionate about supporting enthusiastic, hard-working tradespeople to improve their skillset and move forward in their careers. They are the future of our industry and this scheme will provide them with the tools they need to flourish. “We look forward to seeing our customers and their businesses thrive as they progress through the scheme.”
