ERRIGAL TRAINING ACADEMY - Training is our Future

For many years now, the shortage of skilled labour and the challenges of finding skilled operatives has been a key topic of conversation industry. We believe that having a dedicated focus on the training and development of our operatives and staff to the highest standards in our own training facility will better equip us for the future. 

Through our training programmes, our aim is to increase productivity and improve quality on site in an effort to maintain and exceed the excellent services we currently provide.

With a better qualified and certified workforce, Errigal will continue to be the most valuable subcontractor on site for our clients and further  enhance our position as a market leader in the ceiling and partitions sector.

The Errigal Training Academy was established at the end of 2015 and our first group of 16 trainees started in January 2016.

Our vision is to train 200 operatives in the next 3 years.
