MP Skills are hosting a series of free CPD training sessions throughout the year, with each webinar event covering a different topic of essential safety, relevant to the industry.

With 2020 being a challenging year for all employees and businesses within our sector, the team at MP Skills recognises the need for ensuring all individuals feel safe and competent within their day-to-day roles. Through efficient and up-to-date training material, each session is specifically designed to give attendees an opportunity to progress and expand their skillset.

The series of events will take place over the duration of the year, with the first session being held on Tuesday 23rd February at 2pm, covering the ever-relevant subject of Mental Health Awareness.

Entitled “Mental Health and Me”, the session will last for approximately just over an hour. The event will facilitate a live Q&A session with MP Skills Trainer, Julie Edwards, who is herself a qualified Mental Health First Aider.

Fresh from speaking at a recent Institute of Quarrying event on ‘Mental Health and Wellbeing’, Julie brings a wealth of experience and knowledge, on the subject matter:

“It is so important to look out for one another at work and at home, especially in these unprecedented times.  Our Physical and mental Wellbeing is essential for our quality of life and happiness.  Join us, to learn about what we can all do to promote our own health and wellbeing and the wellbeing of others”.

General Manager for MP Skills, Neil Peacock, quoted “The COVID-19 pandemic has been an incredibly big challenge for all of us in many different ways. Businesses across the industry have been affected and part of that impact, has been on receiving training.

Whilst we are providing high-quality virtual classroom environments to continue teaching, and remote assessment services, there is also a need to continually improve and reinvigorate knowledge, with bitesize chunks of relevant learning.

MP Skills wanted to help and support the extractives sector, by introducing free to attend webinars, allowing colleagues and teams, the chance to continue their development whilst at work or in furlough. The team and I really hope you enjoy the experience of the first ever CPD webinar and look forward to seeing you at the next events.”

The event is free, and participants will receive a certificate of attendance to add to their CPD portfolio shortly afterwards.
