An update from… Martin Dury, Head of Future Skills

July 22, 2019

2018 was an exciting year for MTC Training. The addition of more courses to our portfolio created an inevitable increase in engagement with our training, as the adoption of advanced manufacturing technologies continues.

We welcomed delegates from across the UK and Europe, from areas including business, academia, aerospace and military research, and engagement with our courses looks set to continue to grow.

This success is a testament to our committed team who create highly engaging and educational courses which are not only relevant to the emerging skills requirements of today, but are also constantly evolving to meet the needs of the future.

In 2019 we are continuing to work with an increasing number of clients who understand that the return on their investment in new technologies can only be maximised by ensuring that their staff have the necessary skills to fully exploit these new technologies.

These include organisations of all sizes and sectors, and an increasing cross-section of staff, including those who need technical skills, and also those who simply need a broader understanding of the technology their business is adopting.

“Our courses are not only relevant to the emerging skills requirements of today, but are also constantly evolving to meet the needs of the future.”

Throughout the next year we will continue to increase our training course offering, adding additive manufacturing curricula, providing end-to-end qualification paths for upskilling engineers in this rapidly growing technology. These new courses are being created in response to identified skills needs through our competency framework approach.

We are also currently working with the CPD Certification Service to accredit both our existing and future courses. This will allow delegates to not only receive a certificate from MTC Training, but also a certificate which allows them to count their attendance towards a programme of continuous professional development, which to many is a valuable demonstration of commitment to furthering their skills, and often valuable in the renewal of professional memberships.
