Give2Gain wins at NDA supply chain awards
We are delighted to announce that Give2Gain, an employer-lead project headed by NIS Ltd and co-ordinated through the National Skills Academy for Nuclear, has been awarded “Best Supply Chain Collaboration” at the NDA Supply Chain Awards held on Thursday 6th November 2014.
The project which is supported by HM Government has been successful in gaining £1 million in funding which is matched against employer funding and in-kind contributions from a current network of 30 nuclear employers, who have pledged to use their training budgets as match funding to target resources effectively on key skills priority areas.
- Give2Gain is an innovative way of providing funding to employers within the nuclear industry supply chain for their training.
- Employers are awarded credits for activities they undertake to develop a talent pipeline for the industry such as taking on apprentices or graduates, having active STEM Ambassadors and offering student placements.
- They can then use their credits to receive up to 50% match funding for their training needs, meaning they can train more staff, more quickly with their training budgets.
- The funding received is matched against employer funding and in-kind contributions and allows employers to target resources effectively on key skills priority areas.
