Minister for Education and Skills, Richard Bruton TD was keynote speaker at an event in Wood Quay Venue on 26th October 2017 organised by Dublin Regional Skills Forum (DRSF) in collaboration with the Local Enterprise Offices.
In his address to over 70 SME businesses and education providers Minister Bruton said: ‘I have set the ambition to make Ireland’s education and training service the best in Europe within a decade.’
At the event, employers told their story of how they work in partnership with the education and training providers in Dublin and how these partnerships benefit their business. Brendan Murphy of Dublin Aerospace told of his company’s relationship with CDETB’s Training Centre in Finglas.
Brendan described how the centre has responded to the training and recruitment needs of his company by delivering apprenticeships and traineeships in the area of Aircraft maintenance. Over the years, the majority of the graduates from these programmes took up employment with Dublin Aerospace or with other similar companies and many are now employed in companies around the world.
Dublin Aerospace is benefiting from having a steady flow of trained staff who meet the exact requirements of the job and the industry. A win/win for all concerned.
