BPMA’s Skills Development Portfolio Expanded to include Management Training

Always looking to improve, develop and grow its highly regarded training provision, the British Pump Manufacturer’s Association (BPMA) is pleased to announce the introduction of three brand new ‘management training’ courses.

In partnership with an experienced and hugely engaging independent lecturer, each stand-alone course is aimed at those individuals within the pump sector who have been newly promoted and/or are completely new to a management role within their company.

It is common practice for large organisations and corporate entities to run their own internal training programmes, to help ensure employees make a successful transition into management roles.

However, small and medium sized businesses often promote staff, or have existing managers take on new/additional management tasks themselves, only to find they are having to deal with unfamiliar situations.  These new courses are specifically designed to help and support newly promoted managers within SMEs gain the tools, skills and understanding required to help them confidently and successfully progress into their new management role.

Each classroom-based course will be held at the BPMA’s dedicated training facility in West Bromwich, as follows:

  • Communication Skills (1 day) – 28th April 2020
  • Finance for Non-Financial Managers (2 day) – 3rd & 4th June 2020
  • Management Essentials for 21st Century Managers (3 day) – 7th, 8th & 9th July 2020

Gary Wilde, Technical Services Manager at the BPMA said of the new courses, “We have been asked on numerous occasions by members and non-members alike if we could offer management courses of this type, and so I am thrilled that we are now able to do so.  We have engaged an excellent course leader who will deliver these courses in a way that both informs and inspires.”
