Employment & Training

Training Links

CWAF actively promote our sector to young people in the Coventry and Warwickshire area. Individual members hold key roles on the board of organisations such as the Midland Group Training School (MGTS) for engineering apprentices and this year CWAF held its first annual conference at the Manufacturing Technology Centre with a focus on careers in local aerospace, inviting along school leavers and college students from the region. Alongside this, existing apprentices within the group have recently won national awards. That would all be impressive enough but it’s their innovative approach to providing much needed supply chain capacity which makes their efforts stand out. Although the members of the group are effectively direct competitors, a foundation of trust means they not only share capability through inter trading between themselves, but the group has bid collaboratively on larger work packages offering their collective capabilities to industry.
