Through its CPD programme, NMiTE will welcome experienced engineering professionals and groups such as those leaving the Armed Forces, all seeking the opportunity to enhance their skills, productivity and employability. The Defence & Security series has been developed to support Armed Forces leavers helping them increase their future career opportunities by covering a diverse range of topics, from global corruption to energy demand.
Samantha Lewis, Head of HR and CPD Manager, NMiTE says, “We identified a lack of lifelong learning opportunities supporting military leavers, so designed our Defence & Security series to fill the gap. As Minister for Defence People and Veterans, The Rt Hon  Tobias Ellwood said when he visited our site in May this year there is still a stigma attached to ex-soldiers struggling to adapt to civilian life. Because we are based so close to military establishments and the defence and security industry 'golden triangle' we believe NMiTE will be a really local and visible pointer to the wider world of engineering.”
Anna Roby-Welford, CEO, 3CDSG said:“One of 3CDSG’s aims is to foster and support the adoption amongst ourselves and our members of practices which support ex-military service personnel to better transition into civilian work.  To this end, 3CDSG recently signed the Armed Forces Covenant (AFC) during a public signing at our associated event, the Three Counties Defence and Security Expo (3CDSE). We were honoured to be in the company of a number of other defence and security businesses who undertook the pledge.
“This CPD series, launched by NMiTE, is a further example of the excellent initiatives in the County to support our service men and women. It will ensure that their existing, as well as new, skills and knowledge are recognised and accredited, enabling them to better showcase these to current and prospective employers.”
3CDSG is an association of security and defence SMEs, established to significantly raise the commercial and industrial capacity of the sector, in particular across the Three Counties of Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire, which comprise the hub of the UK’s defence and security industry. The Group provides an industry-specific platform to connect SMEs and organisations in the defence and security sector, creating opportunities to collaborate and identify partnerships and joint ventures.
Over the coming months NMiTE will announce and launch a total of eight CPD courses, each with an Anchor Partner business. The Anchor Partner will support the launch of the CPD Series relevant to its sector
