The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) has approved Taranto Ltd's graduate engineer and technician training scheme. The scheme outlines how Taranto Ltd commits to providing trainees with the support they need to gain the knowledge and experience required to work towards professional qualification with ICE to Eng Tech, IEng or CEng.
Taranto Ltd places great importance on the appointment of a mentor for every trainee, known as a Supervising Civil Engineer (SCE).
Initial Professional Development (IPD) at Taranto Ltd comprises the acquisition and development of the special skills and professional approach needed to practice as a professional. It bridges the gap between an educational foundation and professional qualification, developing a trainee’s ability to hold positions of responsibility and make independent judgments.
The first element of IPD is structured to give a trainee the necessary breadth of experience, as defined in the ICE’s Development Objectives.
The second part is a gradual progression towards increased responsibility, reflective of a trainee's personal development and commitment. This should also provide time for consolidation of experience and for preparation for the ICE's Professional Review.
We pride ourselves on producing the best products, with the highest standards in the industry through ISO accreditations and insurance backed guarantees.
Striving for continuous improvement, Taranto encourages innovation across our business. This includes our quality systems and procedures and innovative new techniques being developed with the support of Queens University, Belfast.
