Midlands Regional Skills Forum Advanced Manufacturing Survey

11 April 2022 

As part of the recently launched Midlands Advanced Manufacturing Plan, the Midlands Regional Skills Forum (MRSF) and its education and training partners have developed an Advanced Manufacturing Survey designed to identify skills needs and levels of upskilling required to ensure alignment among training providers, regional employers, and supporting agencies. 

 The survey seeks Midlands Regional manufacturers views in several areas including current critical vacancies, future skills needs, and the development of curricula to ensure the provision of high quality and sustainable education and training. 

 Your feedback counts. Your responses will help identify skills needs in the areas of advanced and sustainable manufacturing while ensuring alignment with research, skills development, and training. Along with feedback from other employers, it will provide data that assists the MRSF, the Advanced Technologies in Manfacturing cluster (ATiM), ETBs, and Skillnet Ireland in the development and provision of the most relevant education and training needed by employers in the Midlands region. 

 Participation in this survey is highly valued, but voluntary. Please note that your response is private and confidential. Individual respondents will not be identified in any data or reports. Survey responses will not be linked with other administrative records. You are free to withdraw consent at any time. We will fully protect your anonymity and the confidentiality of your responses in accordance with GDPR guidelines. 

 The survey only takes approximately 5 minutes to complete.
