Director Noel Ruane appointed Chair, The Construction Group Training Assocation (GTA)
Posted on the
Director Noel Ruane was appointed Chair of the Greater Manchester Construction GTA Contractors Council in January 2013 for his continued commitment to developing innovative training and apprenticeship initiatives.
The Construction GTA is a collection of employers, procurers and training providers working collaboratively within the industry to create sustainable training opportunities. Overseeing the GTA is the Contractor’s Council, a steering group of around 25 industry representatives which Noel chairs.
Adding its weight to the Contractors Council is a Client’s Board whose members include construction procurers such as housing associations, local authorities and universities. Noel said, “For the first time the GTA is bringing together clients willing to share their pipeline of work, the Contractors’ Council is the ears of the industry telling us what skills to invest in, and we’ve got the GTA led by Greater Manchester Chamber, making sure our trainees can get from day one to the end of year two and three and in the most sustainable way possible.”
