MBDA Case Study
MBDA Systems are celebrating after winning the Employer of the Year Award at the Greater Manchester Learner Awards for 2007.
The awards ceremony, which took place at Manchester Town Hall, acknowledged MBDA’s commitment to developing their workforce through
Apprenticeships. As the Training Provider they work with, ProCo NW Ltd was also recognised and presented with a certificate.
MBDA regards the provision of Apprenticeships as a strategic
imperative. Their engineering and commercial Apprenticeship programmes form
part of a wider strategy to develop the next generation of employees,
recognising the benefits of work based learning for an employer as well as
the Apprentice. MBDA have a structured training programme with some
Apprentices continuing onto degree level programmes.
Elaine Walsh of ProCo NW Ltd has worked with MBDA for 8 years and says "MBDA's commitment to young people is second to none and places on their Apprenticeship programme are much sought after".
The Chamber congratulates both ProCo and MBDA on their excellent achievement.
