Bostik has opened the Bostik Academy, a new state-of-the-art training facility, at the company’s UK headquarters in Stafford.
The facility features a modern lecture theatre for theoretical training, which can then be put into practice in a separate room that includes custom-built features such as flooring bays, plus the technology and equipment for various practical demonstrations.
The Bostik Academy offers a mix of blended learning, interactive seminars and the ability to host live streaming webinars, ensuring there is provision for a wide range of training. A separate online platform enables attendees to consolidate their learning after the training sessions. This means that as well as on-the-day training, trainees will benefit from an ongoing experience with user-friendly resources.
The company’s technical team already has experience of delivering training both on and off Bostik’s premises, but the new facility will improve the opportunities for trainees to benefit from the team’s expertise.
“We know that the ideal training varies for different teams depending on their needs, which is why we’ve designed the Bostik Academy to be able to provide a mixture of different types of training. We want people to strengthen their skills and leave us with improved confidence in their abilities. The right training is, therefore, a valuable investment for contractors and distributors, and will give them an important advantage in an increasingly competitive market,” says Darren Robinson, National Technical Manager at Bostik.
