PD Ports trains leaders of the future

[ December 12, 2018   //   ]

PD Ports has launched a new bespoke Chartered Management Degree Apprenticeship (CMDA) with Teesside University to develop its future leaders.
With a relationship spanning over ten years, PD Ports, operator of Teesport – one of the UK’s busiest ports, has joined forces with the University once again to launch the three-year, part-time course.
This is the second degree programme PD Ports has collaborated on with the University following two groups of employees completing a bespoke Foundation degree in Leadership and Management in 2009 and 2011.
An initial cohort of 20 management staff from across the business have signed up for the new degree apprenticeship, which is designed to give participants the skills, knowledge and experience to lead the business in the years ahead.
Working with PD Ports, the University has developed a bespoke course that will give employees the opportunity to learn theoretical knowledge to underpin the practical skills developed whilst carrying out their daily roles.
