Local aerospace company named a top training provider by government watchdog
Coventry-based Dunlop Aerospace Braking Systems is celebrating after being named as one of the country's top training providers by the Government body responsible for the quality of education and training for adults and young people.

David Sherlock, the chief inspector for the Adult Learning Inspectorate, named the Meggitt group company as one of only 151 organisations in the country to receive 'good' or 'outstanding' inspection grades for every aspect of its training.

In total, around 3,000 organisations were audited for the Adult Learning Inspectorate's latest annual report, and as part of the process inspectors interviewed all apprentices employed by the company.

"I am delighted to name Dunlop Aerospace Braking Systems as one of the year's outstanding providers," said Sherlock.

"The company has demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to achieving the very highest standards in the quality of training it offers.

"Apprentices can be confident that they will receive first-class support to receive their full potential. To be one of the top providers in the country is a tremendous achievement and a great credit to the team."

Being named a top training provider is the latest in a number of endorsements for Dunlop Aerospace Braking Systems' apprentice scheme. Apprentices have either won or been shortlisted for several local awards over the last few months.

Among these, James Harrold was named Apprentice of the Year by the City of Coventry's Freeman's Guild, with Nick Newman also making it through to the finals. Newman was also a finalist at the EEF Apprentice of the Year award.

The company's learning and development officer, Steve McCarthy, said: "This accolade is testimony to the hard work we have put into the delivery of our training programmes.

"We see the learning and development of our people as an important strategy for the business.

"Around half of the company's employees in Coventry started their careers on the apprentice programme and we have been delighted to maintain our commitment to this training even during the tough times faced by the aerospace industry."
