Training accolade for MG Rover
The UK Adult Learning Inspectorate has graded MG Rover "outstanding" for leadership and management, equality of opportunity, engineering technology and manufacturing, business administration, management and professionalism.
The inspectorate was particularly impressed by the company's young-people development, which involves observing activities in the workplace, carrying out reviews and interviewing employees. The ultimate aim of the initiative is to improve quality and ensure that learners get the best possible education and training.
David Sherlock, Chief Inspector of Adult Learning, commented: "The quality of training at MG Rover is a model for all, recognising the value of training not only to meet business needs but also in the personal development of staff. Excellent training provision does exist in this country, as MG Rover proves. Sharing such good practice is essential to drive up standards across industry."
David Cragg, Birmingham and Solihull Learning and Skills Council Executive Director, said: "It is clear from these impressive results that training lies at the heart of the new company. Training on this scale and of this quality distinguishes MG Rover as a leader in its field and bodes well for the company's future competitiveness."
MG Rover currently has 107 trainees on its advanced-modern and foundation apprenticeship schemes.
