Upskilling UK industry  

NPL has always played a leading role in providing training in measurement science, an essential skill for the current and future workforce. At the beginning of April 2020 we made our catalogue of e-learning courses available free of charge, and from October 2020 there was a 50% reduction in price. The e-learning covered general measurement, dimensional measurement and a range of specialist measurement courses.

Our objective was to help individual’s wellbeing and motivation, as well as enhancing their skills and career pathways. The training has allowed industry and academia to invest in their workforce and prepare them to play a role in helping UK industry to recover quickly post COVID-19. Nearly 10,000 new learners registered for e-learning and there was a 99% satisfaction rate in the training experience.
