DTL wins £1m training contract with Northern Gas Networks

Derby-based Develop Training (DTL) has been awarded a large scale contract for the provision of operational training to Northern Gas Networks (NGN) following a competitive tender process.

The gas distributor is responsible for the delivery of gas through some 37,000km of pipelines to over 2.7 million homes in the North East, Northern Cumbria and much of Yorkshire. NGN directly employs around 1,300 people and provides regular work to around 800 contractors.

In order to manage the learning and development of such numbers, NGN has contracted DTL to deliver gas network technical training and health & safety training. The training will be conducted at DTL’s York training centre, while classroom-based learning will be delivered on-site at various NGN depots.

Lyndsay Ellis, operational training manager for NGN, said: “We are pleased to place this contract with DTL, with whom we’ve enjoyed an excellent working relationship in the past.

“The variety of courses DTL offers, combined with their superior facilities and what we consider to be world class trainers, made them the strongest contender for this programme of work”.

Chris Wall, sales & marketing director for DTL, added: “I’m delighted that our partnership with Northern Gas Networks continues to flourish. The award of the contract followed a hard fought tender process, in which DTL’s quality of delivery and variety of programmes prevailed. We are looking forward to working closely with NGN and explore innovative training solutions for their operational training”.

The contract, which will run for an initial two year period, has an option for two one-year extensions and has an anticipated total value of over £1m. Training is set to commence in May 2016.
