We are pleased to be running our new course "Theory and Practice of Lime and Cement Stabilisation" on 30 April.  This 'Level 3' course is aimed at engineers and geologists with experience of earthworks wanting to expand their understanding and skills to include soil stabilisation.  Follow this link to download the descriptor for this highly recommended course.

 The course will be delivered by Dr Paul Beetham, who is an ICE appointed Panel Expert advising HS2 on soil stabilisation, and has extensive experience of soil stabilisation working both for specialist contractors and as a consultant.

2019 Course Calendar Update

Our updated calendar is available from here in a list format and here in a year to view format.  


We recently had the pleasure of working with a group from GRM.  Over three sessions in March 2019 we covered a varied geotechnical syllabus bespoke to their needs. 

Feedback after the course was excellent, such as "great course - thank you very much!" and "excellent course - very nicely delivered". 

Courses in April and May 2019

We have the following courses coming up soon - just follow the links for information on each:

All these courses are running in Chesterfield and cost £250 + VAT per delegate unless stated.   Discounts are available for group bookings or delegates attending more than one course.  Please contact us to reserve your place.

More CPD Ideas

This latest post on a breadth of CPD ideas are useful for anyone but are especially useful for graduates pursuing professional qualification with the ICE as the Autumn 2019 session is already fast approaching. 

Sustainable Development has been explored before in Newsletter No. 6 and Newsletter No. 7, but we thought it timely to draw attention to the latest news that the merger of CEEQUAL and BREEAM under CEEQUAL Version 6 is scheduled for June 2019.   Consultation on the scheme is open at the time of writing.

Effective Communication is something we all hope we are good at, but if you were asked at a professional review to explain what it is could you do so?  There are many articles on the internet, and many self-help books too, but we found this concise post to be simple and worth a quick read.

HSW Statistics and Trends - We work in a risky industry, and the latest HSE statistics are not improving greatly year on year.  The statistics make for sobering reading but should help us all try to drive the industry further forward. 

If you want to see other CPD ideas, you can look back at previous newsletters by following this link.

Mentoring Update

Our mentoring support programme is continuing to develop and expand, as is our commitment to helping everyone develop to meet their aspirations.  In the last month alone we have added two further mentees.  We are also hosting a bespoke 'challenge event' on contractual matters for graduates enrolled in an ICE Training Scheme for a major client, to help them help each other.  Additionally, we helped 12 graduates with their final preparations for the Spring 2019 Professional Review session.  As ever it is demanding but enjoyable work!

If you have any graduates needing support then please feel free to contact without any obligation our 
Dr Andy Goodwin to see how we could cost-effectively assist you.
