GIRI Training press release
The Get It Right Initiative is now rolling out error elimination training for the wider UK construction industry in three focused areas: leadership training, training across interfaces and supervisor & manager training.
These training schemes were initiated in 2017 when the CITB launched a £500k productivity commission in response to GIRI’s research into the root causes of error in the construction industry. This commission called upon industry to address the identified skills gaps that are contributing significantly to the cost and frequency of errors, defects and re-work in construction.
GIRI consortia bid for, and were awarded, CITB funding to develop innovative training to address some of the headline issues identified in their research. This CITB seed funding, paralleled by investment from GIRI member consortia, enabled the creation of detailed training schemes that respond to the construction industry’s need to develop an ‘Error-Free Culture’. The schemes have now been stringently tested with over 800 delegates, from over 60 construction organisations, to ensure the training can deliver maximum impact on error reduction and productivity for the construction industry.
Testimonials from participants include:
“I can only imagine the impact on our project if we had implemented some or all of the concepts in the way the course proposed”
“Fantastically delivered GIRI course that has challenged the team to find ways to improve their working methods to stamp out errors”
This comprehensive suite of courses has been developed by industry, for industry, and will be able to play a significant part in helping to reduce the frequency and cost of error in construction. This will ensure all industry workers can develop the right skills to collaboratively understand, pre-empt and avoid error in their daily work.
Information about the training content, audience, delivery formats, learning outcomes, upcoming dates, cost and booking information is available via the GIRI website training page and delivery partners. A GIRI training introductory video and a GIRI training information booklet is available via the GIRI website resources page.
GIRI members will receive a discount on training places along with the opportunity to ‘host’ a course. Interested non-GIRI Member organisations can also offer to ‘host’ a course. A ‘host’ organisation is expected to provide a suitable venue that aligns with training requirements, in return they will receive two free places on the course, and priority booking for the remaining course places.
