Lessons that Last a Lifetime

Lessons that last a lifetime

Why is skills training so important?

St Blazey and several other communities in Cornwall are amongst the UK’s 10% of most deprived areas.

MPKC’s objective is to help alleviate local poverty and support social and economic regeneration by providing practical training opportunities to a broad cross section of the community. There is already a demand for STEM and Construction Industry skills by employers across Cornwall; this is set to increase.

By working directly with local and regional employers to help provide a “work-ready” labour force with the transferable STEM and construction skills that companies demand, the whole Cornish community can benefit from more high productivity employment for local people.

  • STEM and construction skills are essential in supporting the UKs economic future;
  • Practical skills training is in great demand and growing;
  • Skilled personnel are needed to meet Cornwall’s Climate Emergency Goals.
