North West England Higher Level Skills Development and Employer Engagement Processes for Advanced Engineering and Materials


Cogent Footprint Chemicals manufacturing and processing Nuclear and radiological technology Oil and gas exploration and extraction Petroleum refining, storage, blending and distribution Petrol forecourt operations Oil-fired heating services Manufacture of aviation fuels, bitumen, inks Manufacture of plastic and rubber (polymer) Sign-making


Cogent Facts, Figures & Contact Details 813,000 employees 20,000+ businesses Representing a turnover of £67bn GVA £42.65bn Representing 15% of UK Manufacturing GVA Contact Details Rob Bevan, 0151 342 6930 / 07786 707431. [email protected]  


Proskills Footprint building products and refractories coatings extractives and mineral processing glass print .… but are expanding to incorporate: furniture paper (and likely) packaging


Proskills Facts, Figures & Contact Details around 21,000 companies employing just over 300,000 people across the UK delivering £29bn per annum turnover (NB the footprint expansion will take Proskills UK to around 1m people) the sector is predominantly located within England 90% of the companies within the sector are SMEs 85% of companies in the sector reported ‘stable’ or ‘expanded’ business over the last twelve month period productivity (in terms of GVA) across the sector is nearly 60% higher than the average for the UK economy 35,000 people are employed by the sector in the North West Contact Details Ray Snowdon 07795 011983 [email protected]


SEMTA Footprint Engineering Manufacturing Engineered metal products Mechanical engineering equipment Electrical engineering equipment Electronic equipment Motor vehicles Shipbuilding/ship repair/boat building and repair Aerospace Other Transport Equipment (including Railway locomotives ) Science SEMTA has responsibility for Scientific occupations that include: Research and development in pharmaceutical manufacturing companies The application of bioscience for the processing and production of materials SEMTA are also responsible for mathematics across all of the sectors


SEMTA Facts and figures for UK 76,000 establishments 2 million people employed (7% of total UK employment) £64 billion per annum turnover Contributes 9% of UK Gross Domestic Product (GDP) Contributes 33% of total UK Exports.

Skillfast-UK Footprint Businesses throughout the apparel, footwear and textiles supply chain, including design, manufacturing, wholesale trade and after-sales servicing Based around four key sub-sectors: Textiles – including technical textiles for a wide range of end-use markets such as aerospace, automotive, medical, industrial Clothing and fashion design Footwear & leather Laundry and dry cleaning


41,000 establishments in the UK, c.5,700 in NW Employment of 380,000, 58,000 in NW Net contribution of £10bn, £1.6bn in NW NW is leading area in the UK in terms of contribution to apparel, footwear and textiles Contact details John West 0113 2399 614 Email: [email protected] Skillfast-UK Facts and figures for the UK


Five stage process leading to industry agreement to a programme of collaborative action: Stage 1: needs assessment Stage 2: analysis of current provision Stage 3: gap analysis Stage 4: scope for collaborative action by employers Stage 5: action plan with key delivery partners Sector Skills Agreements (SSAs)


North West Sector Skills Agreement – Higher Level Skills Development SEMTA Sector - Aerospace Shortage of Science & Engineering Graduates with Work Experience Shortage of Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul (MRO) Licensed Aircraft Engineers SEMTA Sector - Electronics Shortage of Graduates with Technical Engineering Skills, Practical Skills, Work Experience Demand for Design Engineers, Electronic Engineers, Software Engineers and Production Engineers


North West Sector Skills Agreement – Higher Level Skills Development SEMTA Sector - Automotive Low Levels of Skills Gaps for Professional Occupations Workforce Developments Needs – Improved Technical Skills, Better Knowledge of Materials and Production Engineering. Higher Level Skills Needed for New Automated Technologies Trend to Continue of Graduates in Professional Job Roles SEMTA Sector - Marine One Large Employer with 19% of UK Workforce, Shortage of Science & Engineering Graduates with Work Experience, Navel Architects, Mechanical, Electrical & Marine Engineering Engineers


North West Sector Skills Agreement – Higher Level Skills Development SEMTA Sector Marine – Continued Lack of Specific HE Qualifications in Marine Electrical Engineering Demand for Post Graduate Courses in Marine Safety Engineering Workforce Development – Improved Technical Skills. Current Training Supply Insufficient To Meet Business Needs Skillfast Sector - Technical Textiles Shortage of Graduate Scientists / Technologists with Knowledge of Textiles Technology / Materials Science (including composites) with Relevant Experience to Support Product Development, Process Engineering and Technical Services


North West Sector Skills Agreement – Higher Level Skills Development Proskills Sectors - Building Products & Refractories, Coatings, Extractives, Mineral Processing, Glass and Print Shortage of Technical Leaders / Managers with Strategic IT Capability Lack of Progression from Technician Job Roles to Technical Manager Job Roles Lack of Upskilling Activity Cogent Sectors – Chemicals, Nuclear, Oil & Gas, Petroleum, Plastics Need Technical Leadership and Management CPD Need Business Improvement Techniques (BIT) Level 4 Need Health, Safety and Environmental (legislation focus) CPD Programmes for Managers


North West Higher Level Skills Development & Employer Engagement Processes Potential Projects with Sustainable Outcomes Sandwich Degree Courses to Improve Employer Engagement and Work Experience of Undergraduates / Graduates, Industry Placement Programmes Graduate and Higher Apprenticeships for Structured Work-based Learning Graduate Development Programmes for SME Employers / Graduates Careers and Competency Pathways for Workforce Development – including Succession Planning, CPD Accelerated Workforce Development using HE Credit, Credit Accumulation and APEL Upskilling and Workforce Development Initiatives
