In 2002, Alain Jacquet presented a paper to the Built Environment Professions Conference, entitled "Sustainable Contractor Development through Coordinated and Focused Interventions". What was true then, is still true today.
Contractor development needs to be focused on the contractor's needs, rather than what is assumed that a contractor needs.
It has taken time to develop, however the principles of the Independent Contractor Development Programme have been refined to the stage where a specific approach has crystallised, and we are able to put into practice the principles contained in that paper. The ICDP will provide contractors with a central location where they can access any skills, support, information, and job opportunities that they might want, or need. With access to specific training courses, experienced Construction Mentors, and work opportunities from client bodies in the public and the private sector, this will be the go-to location for assistance!
