NewsNexus Staff Celebrate Management Training Success

More than 50 staff at Nexus are celebrating the completion of a nationally recognised management training programme.

Nexus is the public body which delivers local transport services and owns and manages the Tyne and Wear Metro. 57 employees from across the business successfully completed the training course.

The staff, from a mixture of office, engineering and frontline jobs, have gained a Level 3 qualification in First Line Management from the Chartered Management Institute. The programme resulted in a 100 percent pass rate.

Nexus introduced this training scheme due to its ongoing commitment to develop the skills and talents of all its staff.

Tobyn Hughes, Managing Director of Nexus, said:

β€œThis management training is important for securing the long term future of our organisation. It provides our staff with a nationally recognised qualification. We will always invest in the skills of our workforce.

These are exciting times for Nexus, with our plans for new Metro trains and a new depot making progress. Therefore we need the right people with the right skills as we move into this bright new future.

My congratulations go to our staff who completed this training scheme alongside their day to day duties. It shows great commitment and effort from everyone involved.”

Nexus managers took part in workshops and completed assignments in four modules. The topics included key management principles, organisational culture, managing communication and improving team performance.

As a result they have developed their knowledge, skills and behaviours to meet the needs of the business.

The programme was part-funded by Nexus and the Go>Grow programme, which aims to upskill workforces and boost growth across North East England.

Amacus is a specialist leadership and management training provider and a subsidiary of Gateshead College. They delivered all of the training modules to the Nexus staff.

Christine Hall, Managing Director of Amacus Ltd, said:

β€œThe engagement and participation from the Nexus employees in order to complete the training programme within the timeframe is commendable. They should feel immensely proud of their achievements.

Nexus is fully committed to developing its workforce to meet its business objectives. Amacus is delighted to have played a part in supporting that plan.”
