Working in Partnership with


Vanderlande are proud to be partnered with Waterside Training as our principle training provider in the Northwest to deliver technical training to our teams, especially the Mechanical Maintenance VRQ L2 programme.

The mixture of technical knowledge and practical elements which our delegates have received over the course of the year combined to make a fulfilling experience. The course was engaging with many opportunities to participate and lots of relatable examples that we were able to bring back to site. This was found after a full site tour by the Waterside team to expertly devise the best course to deliver our teams with knowledge of the process and equipment on site.

We have now trained at least half of the Engineering Support Operatives across our four shifts with all the teams and site reaping the rewards in maintenance completion and system performance through the continued support given and putting into practice the skills they learnt. The tutorship given is professional with tailored delivery to the differing knowledge of the attendees on each course, which ultimately shows how diverse the styles of teaching are at Waterside Training.

This has set our Engineering Support Operatives on an Engineering and Technical pathway to offer hands on support for our teams of Service Technicians to deliver planned and reactive maintenance across the largest warehouse in both Vanderlande’s and Asda’s UK portfolio.

We look forward to upskilling our single trade Service Technicians in the near future with expertly tailored courses to have a truly Multi-Skilled Engineering team at our disposal.
