Describes how an aircraft factory British Aerospace Defence Ltd (Military Aircraft Division), Brough forged links with local institutions of higher education (Hull University and Humberside Polytechnic) to create two new in‐house training programmes for supervisory and middle management attaching these to nationally recognized qualifications (i.e. The CMS and DMS), and which might usefully serve as a blueprint for similar courses elsewhere. Outlines the distinctive content of each programme and shows how they are arranged and monitored; explains how they fit in with possible future developments (e.g. a company MBA); and concludes with a review of progress to date.
