Bosch Rexroth Training white paper - .PDF file.

Tackling the training gap in UK manufacturing

As technological developments continue apace and all industrial sectors face a constant battle to attract and retain the highest-calibre individuals, the need to offer continuous development opportunities to individuals is vital.

In any case it is almost universally accepted that companies need to invest in developing their staff if they wish to progress as a company and remain competitive, but alongside this there are challenges in dovetailing training needs with other day-to-day operational requirements.

 This white paper is based on the results of an online survey targeting those working within the manufacturing sector, covering a range of topics related to employer training provision, including: the structure of training, Industry 4.0, apprenticeships, links to academia, and maintenance. The survey received 117 responses, of which 93 (81 per cent), were at manager level or above (the questions within the main part of the survey were subsequently only asked to the 93 respondents at manager level or above).
