Valley Security & Fire Ltd recognises that its most important resource is its staff.

We are committed to the training and development of our workforce, so that they will gain the necessary skills to reach their full potential. This will assist in enabling us to achieve our aims and objectives through a well trained and supported workforce.

By increasing the skills and knowledge of our people, we will produce confident, highly qualified staff, to meet the expectations of all stakeholders.

The individual training and development needs will be identified through:

A training needs analysis questionnaire
An annual performance appraisal
Requests from employees.
The training and development needs identified will be met through a variety of activities depending on the nature and extent of the requirements deemed necessary after assessment.

All internal training provided will be of no cost to the employee.
External courses and professional qualifications may be fully or partly funded by the company, depending on the nature of the training and the anticipated stakeholder benefits.
Employees are partly responsible for their own development, as such may inform management of their development needs and, take part in prescribed development activities.

As part of the company’s continuing commitment to training and development, employees are asked to provide feedback on the value and effectiveness of the training and development they undertake. This information will be used to assess and improve the training process.

This policy respects equal opportunities and applies to all employees.
