Welding Skills Survey Launched

Businesses in the Heart of the South West are telling us that they are facing skills gaps in welding and technical training, and that employers need support to:

  • Attract and train new employees
  • Develop a skilled workforce
  • Provide young people with a clear route to technical employment

The LEP is considering the availability of training in welding, fabrication and non-destructive testing (NDT) in the South West. We are interested in developing solutions that will provide:

  • Training for new entrants into the industry
  • Upskilling for individuals with some skills in welding and fabrication
  • Re-skilling for individuals in associated occupations
  • Training and skills assessment for those already employed in the sector
