Wider Action

Employment & Training

DGHP is committed to using the company’s Investment and Development programmes to stimulate employment and training opportunities in communities throughout Dumfries and Galloway.

In partnership with Dumfries and Galloway College (DGC), DGHP supports two training programmes each year that link in with our Development and Investment programmes. Each programme is tailored to the work that DGHP and our contractors undertake.

DGHP and DGC also offer a SCQF Level 4 Introduction to Construction Crafts programme. Based on needs of the “New Build” section of the company and tying in with our Investment programme, the training programme content varies due to the nature of the contracts we have onsite.

The courses at Dumfries and Galloway College have been designed to provide a mixture of practical skills and life skills. As well as learning trades students also get the opportunity to gain important life skills such as CV writing, employability skills and IT skills to enable them to be “work ready”. Each course takes on between 12-16 students and each course generally runs in a six month block.

Potential outcomes for trainees on our programmes range from progression onto further education (e.g. a full time course at Dumfries and Galloway College), a Modern Apprentice or even employment with one of DGHP’s contractors.

The partnership with Wheatley Group will create new training, employment and apprenticeship opportunities – further updates will be available on this page as soon as we have more information. Any new courses being offered through DGC will also be updated here once details become available.  

Our Wider Community

DGHP works in partnership with local community groups and organisations to develop community projects that link in with our new build development programme. Through our neighbour renewal programme in Dumfries and Stranraer we have created bright and vibrant public open spaces that can be used by the whole community. The vison for the areas were created from local community events, workshops and school involvement.

The development in Stranraer has been completed as has the public realm work at The Meadows in Dumfries. DGHP are also looking at a community public realm project that links in with our upcoming site in Sanquhar.
