Barratts will continue to use the simulation centre as it plays an important role in the continued success of their training programmes and are currently considering plans to use the facility and it’s team for Health and Safety training and potentially a Contracts Managers course.
“It’s so innovative. It's such a great idea to have that safe environment to learn and it's so immersive” continues Abi. “the simulation centre is really well run, and the flexibility is so helpful too; there's been times where we’ve needed to change things on the day and team just respond and make it work. And, when you work out per employee going through it, the for the return on investment that you get from them, it’s really good value for money.”
