    • Upon completion of Consulting 101, graduates have the opportunity to broaden their skills in the key areas:

      • Introduction to Business Development
      • Introduction to Leadership
    • Graduates develop these skills via self-directed, e-Learning modules offered via the PB University Learning Portal
    • A blend of on-the-job experience and online learning provides flexibility & customisation
  • Industry Accreditation
    • Graduates are encouraged to gain professional Chartership from their relevant industry body
    • PB offers financial assistance for memberships
    • Each region has a PDP Coordinator who is responsible for organising & promoting accreditation
    • Those actively involved in industry accreditation are exposed to a variety of work tasks & experiences
  • Consulting 101 - Participant comments
    • “ The competency journal lets you map your progress which helps to identify areas for development.”
    • “ The group activities involved participation from everyone & enabled us to work in groups on potential situations we may face in the workplace.”
    • “ Much to my surprise as I dislike the word economics, Commercial Acumen was very interesting.”
    • “ I particularly liked the interaction & activities set out for us in both sessions. The use of visual aids (E.g. videos & graphics) made it more interesting & ensured that it wasn't monotonous.”
  • Consulting 101 - Participant comments
    • “ The overview of ‘PBs value creation model’ helped explain how PB’s key result areas impact the decision making process.”
    • “ I enjoyed the client relationship component. That is obviously key to our business & was good to hear more about PBs strategy.”
    • “ The Commercial Acumen session really opened my eyes to the ‘broader picture’ of the economy, & how it affects us as engineers.”
    • “ I really enjoyed the discussions on climate change & sustainability. I think that was really relevant as it is the way PB as a company is heading in the future.”
