MTC Training has been announced as part of the prestigious shortlist in this year’s Lloyds Bank British Business Excellence Awards 2023, an elite, cross-sector awards programme for businesses of all shapes and sizes.
The skills arm of the Manufacturing Technology Centre, based in Coventry, will go up against nine other finalists in the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) Champion of the Year category. The category aims to acknowledge and reward businesses who have successfully driven initiatives to support their workplace and foster a culture of respect and fairness.
As one of the UK’s leading engineering apprenticeship providers, MTC Training’s mission is to create the next generation of engineering talent while upskilling and reskilling existing workforces from its three bases in Coventry, Oxford and Liverpool.
It positions DE&I at its core through a host of activities including the promotion of STEM professions and an enhanced enrichment programme for its learners. Internally, the MTC Training is extending its Board representation to include greater levels of diversity, as well as providing its employees with a range of benefits that support equity and inclusion, such as flexible working, smart holidays and private healthcare insurance.
David Grailey, Managing Director at MTC Training, acknowledged that while the engineering world is challenged by traditional stereotypes, the announcement is a reminder of how the training provider is making strides in the sector:
