Representing over 145,800 UK companies, Semta Group maintains
a relentless passion for advanced manufacturing and engineering. As the driving force behind the future of the UK economy, the companies we stand for have a combined workforce of 1.66 million people and generate an annual revenue of £321 billion.

Key to the continued success of these companies, the sector and the wider economy are the requisite skills and professional standards that are our exclusive remit. Semta Group takes responsibility for protecting the place of these skills within our allied industries
in order to safeguard their future. It’s our lasting commitment to investing in the people and businesses that propel advanced manufacturing and engineering forward that defines us.

Collecting divergent data points and analysing and synthesising them into actionable insights is an increasingly important part of our offering to you.
Our recently published Skills Snapshots aim to do just that. As the name suggests, these easy-to-access PDF files are a snapshot of the essential facts and figures pertaining to the shifting landscape of our shared interests.

At present, the following Skills Snapshots are available via Semta’s website:

  • Aerospace
  • Automotive
  • Electrical Equipment
  • Fabricated Metal Products − Marine
  • Mechanical Equipment

“It’s a new concept in terms of having multiple sectors under one roof. We cover the advanced manufacturing and engineering sectors so we’re a one-stop-shop for information on AME”

The snapshots make essential reading for training providers and employers alike. They have been purposefully designed to provide an objective, succinct and useful briefing, which is indispensable for key decision makers and stakeholders in the sector. Easy to access and freely available, the Skills Snapshots contain statistical data, projections, information on training and education needs, and much more.

Concise in format yet ambitious in scope, Semta’s Skills Snapshots are a direct response to what key decision makers in the sector have been looking for. More than ever before, in today’s rapidly accelerating world, the ability to have up-to-the-moment industry intelligence at the touch of a button is vital. In the era of Industry 4.0, the opportunities for innovation and sector disruption are expanding exponentially. With business growth at stake, it’s imperative information is not only easily accessible but also reliable and impartial. As a leading, trusted voice in the advanced manufacturing and engineering space for 27 years, Semta is uniquely qualified to provide this service.

From a data and research perspective, EAL Business Analyst Nicholas Renner explains the breakdown of data retrieved from the Warwick Institute for Employment Research in order to produce the snapshots: “This data shows various criteria of employment. Based on the past and also future predictions, these are grouped by geography, sector, occupation and education levels.”

“It’s a new concept in terms of having multiple sectors under one roof. We cover the advanced manufacturing and engineering sectors so we’re a one- stop-shop for information on AME,” adds Nicholas.

Earlier this year, three invitational events were hosted with Qualifications Wales in order to discuss the concept behind the snapshots. “We invited training providers, employers and stakeholders to three dinners across Wales to share the Skills Snapshots,” says Semta’s Head of Commercial, Joanne Iceton. “We used the state of the nation data from the Welsh Skills Snapshot as the background to share information regarding a need for technical skills and soft skills throughout the country. We discussed skills, challenges and highlights with our guests, and this enabled us to gain an understanding of what employers were wanting and how providers could deliver that for them going forward.”

Further dinners are planned across the UK to share insights from the Skills Snapshots and encourage discussion. These events will be instrumental in increasing awareness of the provision of Semta’s Skills Snapshots and the key insights they offer to decision makers and curriculum managers within the sector.
