Our services build on knowledge and perspectives gained from over twenty years of advising and carrying out best practice research for government agencies and major businesses around the world.


Scheme Management

Mandatory training and licensing schemes impact staff and employer attitudes and work behaviours as much as their knowledge and skills.  The relevance of the training they receive, the quality of the learning experience, the efficiency of its delivery and administration, all affect whether the impact will be positive or negative. CAS is expert in delivering independent management and assurance to organisations responsible for such schemes. Our capabilities include:

  • Reducing the risk of invalid certification and support health and safety compliance
  • Designing and managing training and licensing schemes for key and critical workers
  • Monitoring and evaluating training and learning leading to certificates and licences
  • Assessing the alignment of qualifications leading to professional body recognition
  • Building and managing inspection teams
  • Designing and delivering inspection regimes for trainers, facilities, services and systems
  • Remote monitoring of training administration, learner evaluation, customer feedback etc.
  • Risk-based techniques to capture data, track and compare performance

Our services help organisations responsible for mandatory training and licensing need to demonstrate due diligence and value for money to stakeholders and regulators.

We work internationally with governments, industry associations, professional bodies and companies. If you need to improve the performance of a professional development, a mandatory or internal training and licensing scheme, get in touch for an informal discussion of how we can help.

Culture Assessments

CAS has been working with executives on the development of organisational culture since the 1990s, especially on its relationship with health and safety performance. Our services in this area can be tailored to suit your organisation. Get in touch to discuss your needs and requirements.

The CAS safety culture survey examines the current culture and its effects on health and safety through an employee questionnaire, analysis of safety performance data, and consultations with executives and line managers. Findings are compared with executive views of the desired culture and used to inform risk and change management strategies.

The CAS safety culture survey has been used by major civil engineering, transport and infrastructure companies and government agencies. It is quick and easy to use at all levels of the workforce and findings can be benchmarked against our database of over 25,000 individual responses.
