2016 saw Bradbury re-evaluate our goals as a company. With our ultimate vision of becoming ‘world class’ in mind, we commissioned KF Training to help us go some of the way to achieving this; by starting a Workforce Improvement Team (WIT) Programme and Level 2 Leadership & Management training for all staff that wanted to be involved.
KF Training consulted with us, and tailored the training to our vision and the changes we needed to make to achieve this. The take-up on this was huge, and we currently have a more than a quarter of our workforce involved in the training, from WIT groups to Level 5 Management training. This has been managed very well, and both Greg and Paul have been very helpful in coordinating it.
The feedback has been very positive, both from all our staff involved, and those who have seen the changes these schemes have started to make within the company. We are currently looking for more staff to enrol in a second programme, so that the training will continue to run, and the business can continue to benefit from the changes an upskilled workforce provides.

Paragon Rapid Technologies
As a company we’ve expanded rapidly in recent years but to achieve the next phase of our growth plan we have to improve the skills base of our business. This training scheme will allow us to do that and if we meet our turnover projections we’ll be able to create more jobs at Paragon. We are thrilled to be working with KF Training on this exciting project.

I think that this course has brought into focus many ways to organise the workload and my team much more efficiently. Hence the Diabetes and Endocrinology Admin Team have been nominated for a Pride of Derby award.

It’s the first time in years that we’ve had training on site that’s generated such excitement and engagement.
