UK Region (per capita calculation)
The Process Industry is 25% of the NE Economy - £8 billion of £32 billion
Can the Industry contribute £2billion of additional GDP to help close this
GDP Gap within the next 10 years? (The Opportunity – The Leitch Dividend)
About £1800 productivity gain per employee in NE
least Level 2 (currently 70%)
2 to Level 3(doubling the number of apprentices to
500K, most of growth from adults)
4 and above
We in industry must take the initiative to solve our problem
Does it have an Effect?
Two multinational companies have stopped validation of training (not the training) as they lost too many people to the North Sea.
Question: How much should an employer be involved ?
Prime directive: Profit Key Question: Over what timescale?
: is it a cost ? Or is it a value?
Workforce development, and retention
