Summary

A project was conducted in Dudley Metropolitan Borough in the West Midlands, England, to determine needs for engineering training in the face of declining industry and to halt the decline in industry and enrollment in the three colleges in the area. A project leader was chosen and a team trained in 3 weeks of workshops on market research, training needs analysis, and consultancy skills. The team visited small companies in the area, interviewed managers, and observed in the factories. The most important outcome of the project was the development of staff skills. The needs identification process was carried out in a variety of companies, and many training needs were exposed, especially in supervisory practices. The team also found that skill shortages were real, but that small companies had trouble providing training because of cost and lack of expertise. The staff became capable of acting as training consultants and designed training packages to meet identified needs and delivered at times suited to the clients, in the colleges or jointly with the companies. The project concluded that more marketing of college training programs is needed. (Case studies of several companies are included in the report. Appendixes include examples of pilot programs and a glossary.) (KC)
