Last chance to register for MTA and MTC Bridging the skills gap seminar

The MTA and MTC in Coventry have teamed up to bring a half day of talks from guest speakers to help aid you in shortening that gap and get you thinking about how your company can proactively address this situation.

The manufacturing technologies sector, like the engineering industry as a whole, recognises that there is a skills gap which requires a new generation to fill it. It is vital that the industry acts to bring in the talent that it needs. This seminar will be looking at ways in which to address this issue, as well as the types of training available for those new to the industry and existing employees.

This free half day seminar will take place next week 12th May 2015 and start at 9:30am, the event will include a number of speakers, lunch and a tour of the facilities at the MTC.

Speakers include:
• Steve Gasser- MTC
• Paul Schofield- Head of Corporate Affairs, BAE Systems- Talent Retention Solutions
• Suzanne Wells- Operations Manager, National Physical Laboratory
• Tim Thorburn- Craftsman Tools

Speakers will be covering a range of topics from how your business can access high quality engineers through TRS, to how smaller businesses can tackle taking on apprentices. Presentations will focus on making a difference to your business, whether through bringing in new recruits or developing your existing staffs' talents. Spaces are limited so book your place today!
