ENGIE is currently working in partnership with Watford Community Housing on a planned works improvement programme, including internal and external repairs, the replacement of kitchens and bathrooms, electrical rewiring and decoration.
During this five year contract, ENGIE is supporting Watford Community Housing’s vision of ‘better homes, friendlier communities – together’ through delivery of our tailored social value plan for the borough.
One of the strands of our social value plan is to promote economic stability by offering opportunities for training and employment and ENGIE’s Community Impact Manager, Mark Bush, has been working closely with William Hill, the Employability Coordinator at West Herts College, to see how ENGIE can support students on construction related courses and equip them with relevant training.
On 8th October 2018, ENGIE Training Facilitator, Fay Brown, delivered a full day of training, covering Asbestos Awareness and Safe Working at Height Training to students at the King Langley Campus.
The training covered a range of topics including health and safety, duties and responsibilities and relevant legislation. The information covered is crucial to keeping safe on site and the certificate gained will prove useful to students when they’re applying for apprenticeships or employment.
The course was full, with 20 students attending and completing the training.
“We are pleased to continue working with the college, providing training and work experience for students
studying construction related courses. The attendance and enthusiasm from students has been great and we look forward to working with them again.”
