SUPPORTING MANUFACTURING

The Skills Academy enhances an already strong academic offer in Scotland, with a targeted focus on green industry courses.

With the Scottish Green economy destined to grow even faster than it already has, ensuring there is an available supply of skilled workers is more important than ever.

The Skills Academy offers short and fast turnaround skills training, through to high end technical and digital skills. This provides core skills to those learners that are untrained and/or inexperienced in modern industrial settings and supports the continuous development of existing/skilled individuals.

This will enable a steady supply of ready-made workers as manufacturing companies grow and adapt to the opportunities the growing green economy will create, offering core base skills and enhanced job prospects for people entering the green sector industries.

SUPPORTING INNOVATION

The Skills Academy has strong links into MSIP’s other facilities across both its Industrial space and Innovation Campus, including the Innovation Hub and Innovation Labs.

Industry and learners can nurture new opportunities collaboratively, and develop ideas, prototype, form knowledge transfer partnerships and much more.

TESTIMONIALS

quote
“As a battery systems manufacturer, it is imperative that we attract and retain skilled personnel that understand the fundamentals of battery systems and understand how these battery systems are put together. It is equally important our employees have the practical skills to manufacture not only in a volume production environment, but to put together low volume and prototype battery systems. The MSIP Skills Academy supports this requirement by focussing on skills and knowledge specific to our business which cannot be simply instilled by generic courses typical in academia. The MSIP Skills Academy is fundamentally important to the future of our business by forming employees with the right skills and knowledge to enter into and benefit from a rapidly growing industry.”
