RMF Construction Services Ltd noticed a void in the construction industry for specialist competences training and how certain sections of the community were being systematically blocked in advancement of their careers in the construction industry. RMF made a conscious decision to create a training company that will work with the most socially excluded sections of the community. RMF decided to train and equip individuals to the highest standards, so they can have the same career opportunities as any other member of the community.
RMF Construction Training Academy has played an integral role in specialist Construction and Rail training for offenders; providing offenders of HMP Hewell and the West Midlands probation services with an array of opportunities to help them build the skills and confidence needed to achieve success in roles within the Construction and Rail industry.
From its beginning RMF has focused on pinpointing career opportunities within the community, partnering with employers, and aligning its training curriculum to provide offenders with real opportunities for individual growth and long-term career expansion. Whether it was through specialist bespoke training programs or our mentoring support programs, RMF has always been at the forefront when it comes to workforce development. More importantly, however, RMF has led the way, recognising that its mission to ‘help people help themselves’ is rooted in the moral endeavour to provide people with opportunities to overcome obstacles, to transcend tribulation, and to prosper through the hard work and dedication needed to succeed in new careers.
We believe that everyone, regardless of their past, where they live, their age, gender or sexual orientation, should have access to high-quality, safe and effective training services.
By remaining a student-centred and learning-centred organisation, RMF Construction Training Academy will be the premier, specialist Construction and Rail training provider for socially excluded communities in England, providing the most innovative and creative opportunities for skills development, job training, continuing education, and educational growth throughout the Country.
