Our Academy Practice
Career development is the process that forms a person’s work identity. It’s a significant part of personal development and spans the individual’s entire lifetime, beginning when they start their employment journey.
At Entec Si we’re passionate about career development and investing in our own people. This also helps with succession planning and talent management. To help progress this we have developed the Academy Practice which is led by our very own Julie Smith.
Welcome to the Academy Practice
The Academy Practice will support individuals on their journey through continual review and coaching. Alongside these reviews we will use assessment tools to recognise strengths and areas for development.
Using the classic T-Model for development, we believe that individuals will widen their range of proficiencies, adding a specialism to their skillset. These are in either project support/coordination, project/programme management, business/data analysis or consultancy.
Our core values
By developing our core values, key behaviours, soft skills, core/business knowledge and business skills, our colleagues will become more rounded. Similarly this will allow for more flexibility within the company.
We’ve recognised through continual career development that quite often career paths change. As a result this model will provide flexibility, so that individuals get the support they need to make these changes.
Training and development
Training and development also provides benefits in a number of areas:
- Job satisfaction and morale
- Employee motivation
- Efficiencies in processes, resulting in financial gain
- Capacity to adopt new technologies and methods
- Innovation in strategies and products
My role as practice lead
When I was asked to develop the Academy Practice, I didn’t have to think twice. Passionate about people and their development, this was a match made in heaven for me.
I see my role as helping to fundamentally assist in our success. In addition to coaching and developing our people, I’m also helping to establish our needs as a company. When continuous learning is supported employees feel valued, helping boost their engagement and retention.
