Learning & Development

When you know better, you do better. That is why offering the best training to our colleagues is something we invest heavily in and we believe is a key part of our success as a business. Colleagues are provided with opportunities to maximise their experience, expertise and skills and enhance their career development through continuous learning.

"Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn."

Benjamin Franklin

We believe in hiring for attitude and training for skill and that's why we invest heavily in Learning and Development across the Group.

Early Career Go-Getters

We are always excited to have colleagues join us at the beginning of their career journey. We run a variety of apprentice and trainee programmes to help new entrants into our industry lay strong foundations for a long a successful career.

Industry Experts

We run in-house training programmes covering both soft skill training and product training to ensure colleagues always have the skills they need and the best understanding of the products they sell.

Online Superstars

We have a state of the art online learning system across the whole Group which allows colleagues complete online training courses specific to their role. When you start with us you will get your log in details and have a number of induction modules available to start learning straight away!

Grafton Graduates

We partner with a number of universities and local colleges to offer colleagues the opportunity to gain additional qualifications such as diplomas, certificates, degrees and even masters. When school's out we hold graduation ceremonies to celebrate all of the hard work and effort our colleagues have put into their studies!

Future Leaders

We run our very own in-house Next Generation Leadership programme in conjuction with Coventry University. The course brings together rising stars from across the Group facilitating their collaboration and development in an accelerated learning environment. A number of previous cohort members have successfully moved into senior leadership roles across the Group.
