North East training provider secures contract with Kier North Tyneside


Scaffolding training provider AIS Training has secured a contract with Kier North Tyneside to up-skill its employees.

It’s been announced that Kier North Tyneside will initially invest in training 24 of its employees at AIS Training’s 12-acre industrial training village on North Tyneside.

Kier employees will be trained in the CISRS Scaffolding Testing Inspection qualification. The three-day accredited course, which AIS say has been tailored to Kier North Tyneside’s existing processes and practices, will enable employees to inspect and sign-off external scaffolding structures.

Kier regional director, Mike Furze said: said: “At Kier, we are committed to
investing in our workforce to not only improve skill-sets but also to keep
raising industry standards.

“We chose AIS Training to deliver this training because of the high quality
facilities and tuition. The company has invested heavily in the region over the
past few years and now offers a unique training proposition in the North East.”

David John Adams from AIS Training added: “We are delighted to be working with
Kier North Tyneside on this prestigious project to up-skill its workforce. There
are huge skills shortages within the scaffolding sector and Kier North
Tyneside’s investment will help to boost skills levels within the North East
