Seventeen facilities managers from MITIE across the UK have passed their level 3 qualification – and some have been promoted.
All 17 candidates passed the course and some received promotions from MITIE as a result of the experience and knowledge gained from the training, run through Jigsaw Training in partnership with MITIE.
The year-long course, covered the key aspects of facilities management including financial, environment, HR, audit, accounts and management areas.
It included a number of rigorous assessments and students were expected to demonstrate that theory learnt in the classroom was being put into practice.
Candidates, who held varying roles within facilities management at different locations across the UK, met with Jigsaw Training tutors once a month and had ongoing support throughout the course, and also benefitted from mentoring by senior facilities managers at MITIE.
Jo Prior, Account Manager for MITIE, added: “We have some very talented people working for MITIE and it’s a real pleasure to watch them grow and develop their facilities management skills throughout the programme and, most importantly, retain their talent within MITIE.”
James Blackhurst, Managing Director of Jigsaw Training said: “This course demonstrates the disciplines across the whole range of facilities management and is a real challenge for those who undertake it.
“Those who come through the course are well equipped to manage facilities of all kinds on behalf of MITIE.”
The scheme was run as a pilot by MITIE, which has now committed to renewing the course for another group over the next 12 months.
MITIE provides facilities, property and energy management for a wide range of public and private sector businesses.
