Growing Talent in the Manufacturing and Engineering Sectors

Manufacturing (Science & Innovation)

17th May 2023

On 17th May the LSIP held its sector specific event for Manufacturing (Science and Innovation). We were kindly hosted by Oxfordshire Advanced Skills at Culham Science Centre, who offered great input as well as a tour of the fantastic facilities on site.

Speaker, Claire Farrow from Reaction Engines provided a new perspective on how to challenge traditional recruitment practices to help combat the tight labour market and broaden the candidate pool. While Luke, a current apprentice training with OAS, was a shining example of the benefits a company can obtain from recruiting apprentices and committing to their development.

The roundtables offered so much insight into the current skills gaps employers are facing and there was healthy debate on what changes could be implemented into future training provision, the conversations could have continued all day.
