Proskills and NSA MPS announce changes

Industry training experts, Proskills and the National Skills Academy for Materials, Production, and Supply (NSA MPS), have confirmed a number of changes to services, following alterations in Government funding in the last year.

An alteration in Government funding has seen the changes come about

The pair, which have been working together to provide skills to the industry since 2005, say the decision have been made in order to, ‘maintain key services to the sector, whilst improving efficiency and effectiveness’.

The changes will see many skills previously offered by Proskills moved under the NSA MPS brand, in a move the organisations says will, ‘help streamline and simplify our offering to our partners and customers’. 

This move will be coupled with an update to both websites, as well as the individual industry websites run by both organisations.

Stressing the changes will not interrupt current service, the organisations will continue to be a Standard Setting Organisation (SSO), with national occupational standards, qualifications and apprenticeships remaining unaffected. 

In the paper and print industries, the organisations will now work with the industries through existing employer groups and trade associations to deliver the required skills and development to retain a productive workforce

NSA MPS will remain the natural conduit for Government and employer skills investment in the sector.

In the paper and print industries, the organisations will now work with the industries through existing employer groups and trade associations to deliver the required skills and development to retain a productive workforce.

Proskills and NSA MPS have helped boost the industry tremendously in recent years through a number of initiatives, including the popular PrintIT! programme, which has attracted over 110,000 students.

A number of qualifications, units, apprenticeship frameworks, and national occupational standards have also been developed to support the industry moving forward.
