Training and development

HOP is recognised as an “Investor in People” Gold Standard. All HOP staff are encouraged to follow training programmes that assist in achieving professional advancement and career progression. The aim is to ensure all staff receive a balance of on-the-job training and valuable knowledge from in house seminars and external courses. There is extensive opportunity for staff to keep up with their continuing professional development (CPD) at all levels.

All Staff are helped and encouraged by senior mentors, and our Graduates are all on approved ICE Training Schemes or pursuing MI Istructe via Istructe structures routes. Our senior Engineers also enjoy a wealth of CPD opportunities.



Our Training Programme for Chartered Engineers is impressive: current staff pass rates are approaching 78% (Structures) and 100% (Civils), far higher than the national average.



Perhaps most attractive to staff is the intensely varied and interesting workload, from pergolas to power stations, residential developments to football stadiums.
