IChemE reaccredits Briggs of Burton
The Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) Accredited Company Training Scheme (ACTS) programme have re-accredited our Engineering Graduate Scheme for a further four years.
The IChemE assessors were particularly impressed by the following efforts at Briggs;
- Positive enthusiasm and attitude of scheme trainees and mentors
- Scheme documentation and associated quality control
- Company support for the scheme and its accreditation
- Overall commitment to the development of the profession
The Briggs Engineering Graduate Training Scheme encourages our engineers to develop their practical engineering skills by delivering global multi-disciplinary projects. We encourage our engineers “to get chartered” by following a structured training programme. This accreditation increases engagement with the IChemE through obtaining membership, Chartered Chemical Engineer status (MIChemE) and benefitting from mentoring sessions.
We spoke to Mark Phillips, Technical Process Manager and Fellow of the IChemE;
It’s fantastic to receive the re-accreditation award from the IChemE and is a major milestone in helping us build our Engineering Graduate Scheme. As a mentor and manager for the scheme, it is inspiring to see so many well-rounded engineers who have the passion and intent to succeed.
Briggs’ ethos has always been to encourage young talent to further their professional development and providing them with opportunities to deliver global projects. It’s exciting to see both the training scheme and partnership with the IChemE continue to develop.
