Posted 17 March 2016 · Add Comment

At the ADS UK Task Force event in Dublin yesterday, the Centre for Competitiveness and TEC Transnational Ltd launched five new workshops for the new Aerospace Implementation Programme (AIP).

The aim is simply 'Achieving excellence through accelerated learning'. The workshops bring an innovative and highly-effective programme for aerospace companies from the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland and the UK.

The AIP is a combination of IRCA and IAQG recommended and certified training programmes supported by onsite consulting and mentoring to assist companies drive real improvement and build competitive advantage.

Whilst the 25-year aerospace sector growth forecast creates many opportunities world-wide, there are competitors also, making for a demanding and competitive global supply chain.

The training elements of the programme cover five core skills and capabilities that all aerospace suppliers must excel at to survive and thrive in the consistently growing global aerospace sector and supply chain.  All five training workshops are  two days and are based on aerospace AS standards.

However training of employees alone is not enough; skills development has to be translated into competence and the capability to deliver enhanced performance. This is where the consulting support assists companies with an onsite and hands-on, project focused approach that delivers results.

Dr David Scrimshire, Managing Director of TEC, said: “The global aerospace industry is a competitive place. We are pleased to deliver these workshops with the Centre for Competitiveness to enable companies in the British Isles to become more effective in this sector.”

Dr Adrian Gundy, Team Lead Aerospace for the Centre for Competitiveness, said: “The aerospace industries in the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland and the UK are some of the most innovative in the world. These workshops will build on those strengths, and ensure that our companies compete with international organisations.”
