Proskills is the Standards Setting Organisation (SSO) for the process and manufacturing sector, which includes manufacturers, suppliers, and recyclers of construction products. The companies in this supply chain employ around 15,000 people in Wales, making them a major contributor to the economy and a key part of the BEST project.
As an employer-led organisation responsible for setting National Occupational Standards, defining and certificating Apprenticeships and supporting national skills initiatives, Proskills is uniquely placed to identify priority needs and issues in the sector. This will ensure that any training provision developed is timely and appropriate.
Proskills has extensive experience of working on these types of projects, having worked with employers and other partners to identify the skills needs of its sector since 2005. It has been responsible for producing Wales-specific research papers including Sector Skills Assessments in 2010 and 2011. During the BEST programme, they will build on this research with employers, looking more deeply at specific training programme development with major employers and aggregating bodies such as trade associations and trade unions. Sourcing information through these routes will ensure that the design and development of programmes through BEST have employer backing and will make sustainable change to the learners involved.
