Angus Training Group (ATG), an employer led training provider for the engineering industry, has appointed Sam Greer as Managing Director, following the retirement of Alan Swankie.

Greer joins the company from Fife’s Developing Young Workforce project, an initiative aimed at closing the gap between education and industry to help young people into employment, and has previously held a number of business development and growth roles.

Commenting on her appointment, Greer says, “It is such an honour to be handed the reins of the Group after 50 years of tremendously good work. I’m very much looking forward to driving the organisation forward and working with our member companies as we develop a fresh approach to apprentice training.”

She will lead ATG through a period of change, as the organisation identifies new technologies to ensure its training continues to meet the needs of its members and the wider industry.

Greer continues, “My vision is to embrace new technology within ATG to allow our apprentices to fully support the sector and apply the best possible working methods in their employers’ businesses. The last few years have been challenging for the Angus region due to the oil and gas downturn. Whilst this is still a significant market for our members, I believe this is the ideal time to diversify our offering to our members to ensure these companies have an agile and skilled workforce to diversify into new markets and growth sectors.”

“Futureproofing is key. It will be important to work closely and collaboratively with our members and various industry bodies, support organisations and Further Education providers to ensure this region continues to attract inward investment which allows us to provide the most highly skilled workforce,” says Greer.

Becky Dunthorne, senior talent acquisition partner at GE says, “We have worked with ATG Group for a number of years and have always been extremely pleased with the calibre of apprentices that we have taken on. During such a challenging economic climate, it’s especially important for companies to continue investing in the next generation of industry talent, to ensure we mitigate a potential skills gap.”

“Our apprentices are an asset to our business and it’s very rewarding to see them progress and develop with hands-on, practical experience and support. I look forward to supporting Sam as she leads ATG Group in an exciting new direction,” adds Dunthorne.
