A re-skilled workforce – business success for the SME manufacturing sector

Skills shortages. Talent gaps.

How do you upskill your SME manufacturing sector workforce, helping your people to be the best, giving your business the competitive edge? Small and medium sized (SME) manufacturing businesses need to develop their workforce to ensure productivity, growth and a culture of innovation. Suppose there was a simple way to kick start this.

EnginE masterclasses are designed to offer fast track development for SME manufacturing sector staff, building confidence and competence in just a day or a half day workshop. These masterclasses designed and delivered by experts, are run by Lancaster University and partners, such as Blackpool College and Blackburn College. They offer in-depth, compelling upskilling for SME manufacturing companies, ready to re-skill staff at no cost. Think about how that would make an impact on your business.

So what’s on offer? 

A number of masterclasses are lined up but here are two typical examples.
