Learning at Work Week
This week is “Learning at Work Week” which takes place from 16th-22nd May 2022.
“Learning at Work Week” aims to promote a culture of learning within the workplace and, this year, the theme is “Learning Uncovered”.
Here at Tufcot, we believe very strongly in the continued training and development of staff throughout the business.
For this reason, we wanted to explain a little bit about our approach to training in the workplace…
The Benefits of Training
Here at Tufcot, we take the training and development of our staff very seriously.
As we see it, the benefits of training are:
We carry out different types of training including:
Danny Gilbert – From Apprentice to Senior CNC Machinist
As mentioned, we believe very strongly in the continued training and development of staff throughout the business.
All employees have the opportunity to progress through Tufcot’s “Promotional Ladder” through training and continued development.
One great example of this is Danny Gilbert.
Danny joined us as an apprentice at 16 years old. Through hard work and dedication, Danny has progressed through the company rising to the position of Senior CNC Machinist.
He has been with us for 13+ years and is a highly valued member of the Tufcot team.

Revamping Our Training System
Our training system has worked well for us over the last few years but, as part of our approach to continual improvement, we are currently working to revamp our training system to provide an even better approach to staff training.
Our main aim is to improve the way in which we identify skill gaps in the company and assess each person’s continued development.
A number of key staff members are working together to revamp our training system including Kelly Stone (HR Co-ordinator), Justin Krebs (Operations Manager) and David Green (Quality, Health and Safety Manager).
We believe the new system will benefit our employees as well as Tufcot as a company.
