Acua supports management development at the AA
Business development organisation Acua has supported the development of around 100 future leaders at the AA after the company's sixth group of learners successfully completed their work-based skills development programme.
Over the last three years staff at the AA's Breakdown centre in Oldbury, and AA Insurance in Cardiff and Newcastle have completed an eight-month leadership programmes designed and led by Acua, with accreditation awarded by its partner Coventry University.
Janet Craig, management development manager at the AA, said more than 60 per cent of the latest group to take advantage of the programme in Oldbury had already earned promotions.
"Managers across the company have recognised the Acua programme to be having a really positive impact on decision-making, engagement and problem solving within the AA," she said.
"In fact ten of the team at Oldbury who recently completed the Acua programme actually secured promotions during the eight months they were learning, which is a great result.
"Up to 86 per cent have also shown a willingness to carry on and work towards further qualifications which is also extremely positive."
Acua business coach Ian Scholes, who delivers the programme, said the partnership with the AA is continuing to go from strength to strength.
"The AA was one of Acua's first clients when we launched back in 2008 and since then we have developed a really strong working relationship," he said.
"We've now worked with six groups and close to 100 learners across three sites and we're delighted with the progress that has been made and to be playing a major role supporting the AA developing its future leaders."
