PROCAT from an Employers Perspective
In the UK, growth in productivity has gone hand-in-hand with people becoming educated to a higher level. However, weaknesses in our skills base have kept us behind other leading nations. One of these weaknesses is the technical skills gap.
The success of my company relies on being able to recruit and retain people with these skills. It is therefore important that we invest in high quality apprenticeships and training that support the existing workforce and are attractive to the next generation of high-calibre employees.
We chose PROCAT as our training provider because the relationship between the college and their employer partners is one of collaboration and joint responsibility. Being part of the PROCAT GTA enables us to draw on expertise, co-design curriculum and benefit from an unwavering commitment to delivering technical professionals for UK industry.
As many employers do, we believe apprenticeships and high quality work based training provide excellent routes for people to develop and tailor skills to the needs of their chosen industry. Thales has been able to work closely with PROCAT to develop engaging and exciting learning opportunities for those with aspirations to work and progress, in a way we couldn’t have done alone. I invite you to consider how your business could benefit.
