IQ Skills Wheel

Practical guidance, easily found

People working within the quarrying industry need a range of skills and expertise to be effective beyond the basics of the job itself.

We are constantly producing Factsheets that cover a range of topics to support learning in all segments of the IQ Skills Wheel.

The Skills Wheel provides an overview of all the core skills and areas of knowledge that all employees in the mineral products industry should aim to be effective beyond the basics of the job itself. This development will be supported and recognised as part of our CPD programme.

The core skills can be grouped into:

  • Standards & Professionalism
  • Personal Effectiveness
  • Knowledge & Innovation
  • Engagement, Influence & Impact

Look through each area and see if you can work out which skills you should be trying to develop further in:
