Stainless Metalcraft (Metalcraft) is celebrating after it was named as one of 53 companies across the country to receive the prestigious Princess Royal Training Award.
Now in its eighth year, The Princess Royal Training Awards (PRTA) honour organisations showing exceptional commitment to learning and development. This year’s recipients include a mix of small and not-for-profit organisations as well as large multinationals. Representatives from Metalcraft will receive the award at a special ceremony on Thursday 23 November.
Ian Bannister, managing director at Stainless Metalcraft, said: “Receiving The Princess Royal Training Award is a wonderful achievement for our business and a reflection of the team’s hard work creating opportunities for the next generation of engineering talent.
“Our apprenticeship scheme, which has been running for over 100 years, is a key part of our commercial success and the recent opening of the North Cambs Training Centre offers huge potential to take that provision to the next level.
“As students receive exam results over the coming weeks, it’s a timely reminder that there are multiple routes into rewarding, long-term careers. We believe Metalcraft offers one of the best. It is our people that make the business and by investing in their long term development and training, we have an exciting future ahead.”
Kirstie Donnelly MBE, Chief Executive of City & Guilds said: “It’s encouraging to see such a diverse range of employers continuing to apply for a Princess Royal Training Award. Despite the obvious challenges in recent years, they have shown unwavering dedication to nurturing their workforce through outstanding training and skills development, resulting in a lasting positive impact.
“As skills shortages and job vacancies rise, investing in training and development can help to increase productivity and harness and retain talent for future growth. Not only is this good for business and the workforce – it is also beneficial for wider society and contributes to thriving local economies. These organisations exemplify the transformative power of investing in people, and we are honoured to celebrate their accomplishments.”
