Staff training wins Government praise

A MULTI-MILLION pound staff training programme launched by fast-fit giant Kwik-Fit has been praised in an audit by the Government-backed Adult Learning Inspectorate (ALI).

Company bosses say the company has been placed in the top 20% for training among businesses operating in the engineering, technology and manufacturing sector in the UK.

The audit took place over three months and involved 27 days of inspection by six inspectors, 29 mystery centre assessments, 93 staff interviews and assessment of all of Kwik-Fit’s technical training processes.

Kwik-Fit Fleet sales director Mike Wise said: ‘With a total workforce of 10,000 people, we place significant resource each year in our training and development programme.

‘The training and development of our staff is crucial in our on-going crusade to continually raise standards not only in the fast-fit sector but also in the motor industry as a whole.’
