Santander staff to make a difference at Young Epilepsy Centre

A team from global banking group Santander is creating new outdoor facilities for children at Young Epilepsy’s St Piers School and College in Surrey. Around 120 staff will be taking part in the three-day project alongside leading management training company Splash Projects.

“The team took part in a project here last year,” said Colin Robertson, Splash’s Project Manager. “This time they will create outdoor learning spaces – large areas where groups of children and teachers can work together, as well as smaller pods for 1:1 work.

“The pathway from these new facilities will link to the low ropes adventure area Santander staff created a year ago – they will connect the two schemes together.”

The project is part of Santander’s Big Build project, where staff are encouraged to do something for their local community.
Teams for the St Piers project will be led by project leaders from the bank who have previously taken part in internal management development programmes.

“This will be an opportunity to take what they have learned in the classroom and put it to use on a real community project which is outside their usual work experiences and comfort zone,” added Colin.

Splash has worked with Santander to concentrate on a number of key learning experiences during the three days – management and organisational skills, dealing with obstacles, good communications and asking for help.

The team from Splash is made up of British ex-forces personnel and other training professionals with extensive experience of learning – often in challenging environments. They use those skills to deliver extensive management training, on real projects, which transform the lives of people around the world.
