New research and Training Programmes

Thursday 2 October 2014


I know many of you will be distracted by the school holidays when this newsletter arrives - some with the promise of a holiday, and others counting the days until the kids can go back to class. For many, this will be their last term and a rush to make some very big decisions. We're all aware that not enough of those decisions will lead towards the skills that are most needed. Thankfully, programmes like Engineering Education-to-Employment (E2E) are being launched to address that.

It's also a good time to think about how you can upskill your own staff and business. Again, there are some great resources being made available, like the Open Access Labs and National Testing facilities. I'd encourage you to take advantage of them.

One last note that our Exporters Survey will be closing in the next few days, so if you're an exporting manufacturer and haven't shared your thoughts yet, have your say now.
