IQ Skills Wheel

Institute of Quarrying releases first of ‘Skills Wheel’ video series in Hillhead launch campaign

THE first in a series of four new video shorts has been released this week as the The Institute of Quarrying (IQ) ramps up its communications campaign for the launch of its new Skills Wheel, which will be officially unveiled at Hillhead 2016.

A further three videos will be released in the run up to Hillhead, each one detailing a different segment of the Skills Wheel. Each two-minute video features interviews with IQ employees and members mapping out the key skills and competencies needed to work towards a path of continuous professional development in the industry.


The first video in the series, released earlier this week, explains the Knowledge and Innovation segment of the Skills Wheel. This focuses on all areas of site operational issues, as well as general management advice.

IQ chief executive Phil James said of the project: ‘Continuous professional development is an essential investment for future success, for both individuals and operators, and our Skills Wheel is designed to help everyone within the industry achieve the relevant skills to reach their highest potential.

‘It is evident in our video series that our members are passionate about acquiring these skills and continuously focusing on career development.’

The remaining videos will focus on the other three segments of the Skills Wheel, which are: Standards and Professionalism; Engagement, Influence and Impact; and Personal Effectiveness.
