What is Skills Analysis?

The skills analysis service provides an impartial process to benchmark engineers and to enable appropriate training and development plans to be implemented.

Individual engineer assessment reports are generated on completion. These clearly identify current capabilities and highlight gaps in their skills and knowledge. A group summary report is provided for comparison of individual competences, recognition of whole group capability and indicates potential ‘critical points of failure’.

Assessments can be carried out onsite or at MGTS.

Programmes include:

Who is it for?

The MGTS Skills Analysis Programme has been developed to provide comprehensive assessment of engineering maintenance personnel competences with adaptation for technical process operator competencies.

Where the candidate’s current technical skills, knowledge, attitude and aptitude are required to be assessed for recruitment, development or promotion purposes this programme will provide objective assessment data.
