Education And Training Skills Celebrates 55 Years In Business
Education and Training Skills (ETS) is a locally based not for profit Training Provider with charitable status, that in 2020 is proudly celebrating its 55th year in business.
The charity was formed with the view to support businesses in the South West to develop and grow their staff and latterly provide learning and development opportunities for people in the local community to become better equipped to exercise their social mobility.
The CEO and former Royal Marine, Richard Jenkins, said that;
“Better clarity over Brexit has seen South West businesses and local people want to engage more with Apprenticeships and continuous professional development programmes of learning.”
He went on to say he has been;
“Hugely impressed with the way local businesses and local communities have been stepping up to the challenges and opportunities that are presenting themselves now and in the immediate future following Brexit.”
The relaunch held at the Charities Headquarters in Exeter, was attended by local councillors, business owners, directors and decision makers, members of Exeter and East Devon District Council, the NHS, Police, MoD, Sea Cadets and local sporting personalities.
As well as supporting local businesses and communities, ETS is delighted to have committed to the Armed Forces Covenant and is keen to advocate and provide work and learning opportunities in support of serving members, veterans and their families. The Commandant of the Commando Training Centre, Colonel Si Chapman presented ETS with their Armed Forces Covenant Plaque, which Mrs Jane Phillips the Chair of Governors gratefully accepted.
