Nexus launches management training scheme

The operator of Tyne and Wear Metro has launched a new training scheme for managers and supervisors. In partnership with training provider Amacus, the Nexus Frontline Leadership Programme will deliver training to around 60 managers.

The programme will ensure staff have the key skills to meet future demands on the organisation. Training will begin with a series of assessment centres, before progressing to profiling, coaching and training workshops.

Participants will work towards qualifications from the Institute of Leadership and Management and Chartered Management Institute.

Rail director for Nexus, Raymond Johnstone, said: “This is one of the biggest programmes of managerial and supervisor training in the country. It is an investment in the future of our organisation and our staff. It is integral in ensuring our long term success.

“With so much change in the coming years, we need people to be equipped with the right tools to deal with these developments.

“The vision of the programme is to ensure that the right people are in the right roles, that our leaders and managers are engaged and responsive, and that other members of staff are inspired by the wider workforce.

“I am pleased to say this programme is a milestone in our staff development which will, in turn, make Nexus a better, more efficient organisation. We will be able to monitor development and ensure our staff are trained to the best possible standards.”
