Kingdom launches new Academy as £2million investment fund is unveiled

clip_image002Kingdom are extremely excited to have unveiled a plan to spend around £2million of funds to invest in the development of our people, who are at the very heart of what we do.

This investment will be focused on developing our colleagues to provide enhanced services; not only to our clients but also to their customers and service users.

Security and Facilities Management have never typically been viewed as long term careers, but through our investment we aim to enhance professionalism within our sector and attract more talented people into this vital area of work. The programme will foster, develop and retain the skills that already exist within the Kingdom family in order to enhance the way our people work to support the services we provide.

A key focus for the Kingdom Academy will be developing future potential in addition to growing our existing talent and skill base. Having a culture and environment which actively engages and encourages the idea of people growing and developing for the future coupled with our all new course request platform is a great place for us to be and really sets us up for tomorrow’s challenges in the marketplace.

As we roll out our delivery programme we will see the makeup of our business change as the base skill level rises and more and more colleagues become empowered further into their roles raising personal and departmental profiles across the business.

We will work closely with our colleagues and clients to create controlled pilots, each of which will have a set of return on investment (ROI) metrics, allowing both Kingdom and our clients to benefit from demonstrable measurable improvements.

Mapping out job roles to qualifications and training means that we can actively plan journeys for our colleagues. Creating clear progression lines for everybody in the business is a task we are actively working on now, giving them the opportunity to control their career plan.

Some of the main courses will include:

  • Team Leader
  • Customer Service Practitioner
  • AAT
  • CIPD
  • Infrastructure Technician
  • Digital Marketing
  • Business Improvement Techniques
  • Business Administration
