Northumberland steps up its support for industry training

Training, upskilling, and supporting industry is a top priority for Northumberland Skills with local organisations already reaping the benefits.

A bespoke and wide-ranging package of Fabrication & Welding training was recently designed for Egger UK LTD – Northumberland’s largest manufacturing employer which commences with Health and Safety legislation in practice in the workshops, manual handling and safe operation of heavy fabrication machinery.

Northumberland Skills offers tailored training for individuals and groups which are designed to meet business objectives and upskill teams while driving productivity and reducing risk.
Cath McEvoy-Carr, Executive Director for Adult Social Care and Children’s Services, said: “Being able to support organisations across Northumberland in this way means we are also supporting our residents with further opportunities to upskill and train in fields they are building careers in.
“The team has already put together some great packages and I encourage any organisation looking to invest further in their workforce’s training to consider reaching out to them for support and advice.”

The high quality, tailored training is designed to complement business objectives and growth plans.

By working closely with organisations, the team can gain an understanding of training needs and ambitions, meaning together we can build a stronger, skilled workforce, future proofing your business and importantly your organisation’s core assets - your people.
The next phase of training for Egger UK LTD will include compressed gas safety, manual handling of gas cylinders and press brake training – showing they are investing in their teams future.

​Keith Robson, Technical & Apprentice Training Manager, “Northumberland Skills have given EGGER the opportunity to have bespoke training that fits our requirements in areas that we have struggled to find training in the past.”
