SOE has built strong links with business through its Industry Partner scheme. Supporting companies and their employees, SOE promotes development and assists firms in achieving their objectives. Here’s what some of our Industry Partners have to say.
Brian Gilmer, Chesterton Specialist, WG Search – IPlantE Industry Partner
"As a Small to Medium Enterprise (SME), WG Search first became interested in the Industry Partner package when we realised our training courses could be formally approved for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) through SOE."
John Davies, Head of UK Service, MAN Truck and Bus UK Ltd – IRTE Industry Partner
"By being an SOE Industry Partner, MAN demonstrates to employees, customers and the industry, the importance we place on individuals, competence, skill development and support... thus achieving our aim of delivering the highest levels of service to our customers."
Tim Ford, Sales and Marketing Manager, Knorr-Bremse Systems for Commercial Vehicles Ltd – IRTE Industry Partner
"Industry Partnership with the IRTE communicates Knorr-Bremse's commitment to engineering excellence to the rest of the commercial vehicle industry."
Nikki King OBE, Managing Director, Isuzu – IRTE Industry Partner
"At Isuzu, the most important part of our business is listening and reacting to our customers. We need to know their current situation, their plans for the future and the issues facing them. What better way to do this than to talk to Fleet Engineers and Workshop Managers through IRTE."
Phil Wright, Chief Engineer, Allianz Cornhill Engineering – BES Industry Partner
"Because one of the classes of membership requires the attainment of a certain level of both academic qualifications and practical experience, members having this provide the mixture we want; qualifications and bags of experience."
