They make the difference 
 Growing people 

Our people are supported to achieve their maximum potential through leadership, management, training and mentoring.

We are in the top 2% of businesses globally to be awarded the Investors in People (IiP) ‘We invest in People’ Platinum classification, a testament to all our people and the role they play in helping us to make work better. This high-performing classification recognises our commitment to training and development in all aspects of engineering, teamwork, technology, communication and management.

The majority of our senior team joined TB+A as trainees and apprentices and have all grown through the business together. Our ethos is all about passing the baton to those coming through which is fundamental to the sustainability of our business and permeates all levels through engagement, dialogue, strong leadership and continuous improvement. For us, It’s not just about sharing knowledge, but instilling a sense of commitment to others that’s long-lasting and breeds a culture of friendship and relationships.

This ethos of everyone being in it together and recognised for what they do is what makes our Partnership strong and unique. Its recognised at the highest level, having received the Princess Royal Training Award, acknowledging particularly our efforts in encouraging more diversity in the industry and over 45 awards in the last 5 years and most recently:

  • IiP Best Apprenticeship Programme 2022
  • SME Employer of the year at the National Apprenticeship Awards 2022, 2020, 2018
  • IiP Best Pivot Scheme Winner 2021
  • CIBSE Medium Employer of the Year Winner 2019
  • IiP Best Apprenticeship Programme Winner 2019
  • IiP We Invest in People Platinum, IiP Champion and Health & Wellbeing accreditation
  • Commitment level accreditation of the Healthy Workforce charter 2018

Our multi-award winning apprenticeship scheme provides apprentices with the opportunity to become professional engineers on a permanent basis from day one with a route into the industry through a fully supported training and development programme all the way to Chartership.

In 2021 we were the first business globally to be awarded the Investors in People 'We Invest in Apprentices' Platinum accreditation.

We are members of the Technical Apprenticeship Consortium (TAC) to ensure focussed apprenticeships are available nationwide and chair the London Apprenticeship Ambassador Network mentoring other like-minded businesses.

For every project, we bring together experience and knowledge gained through a history of leadership and long term investment in growing our people.
