Second IQ Skills Wheel video released
Latest video in IQ ‘Skills Wheel’ series released on Standards & Professionalism
THE second of a new video series by The Institute of Quarrying (IQ) about its Skills Wheel programme has been released as part of the campaign for its official launch, which will take place at Hillhead later this month.
A further two videos will be released next week in the run-up to Hillhead, each one detailing a different segment of the Skills Wheel. Each two-minute video features interviews with IQ employees and members mapping out the key skills and competencies needed to work towards a path of continuous professional development in the industry.
The second video in the series explains the ‘Standards & Professionalism’ segment of the Skills Wheel, focusing on the key regulations and standards that affect the quarrying and mineral extractives industries. This segment of the Skills Wheel aims to make everyone working within the industry aware of the legislation and key documents that underpin good practices adopted in the workplace.
IQ chief executive Phil James said of the project: ‘Continuous professional development is an essential investment for future success, for both individuals and operators, and our Skills Wheel is designed to help everyone within the industry achieve the relevant skills to reach their highest potential.
‘It is evident in our video series that our members are passionate about acquiring these skills and continuously focusing on career development.’
The remaining videos, due to be released next week, will focus on the other two segments of the Skills Wheel, which are: Engagement, Influence & Impact; and Personal Effectiveness.
