Each project will create opportunities for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and also employment and training opportunities. hub South West is establishing a Skills Academy that will provide training and apprenticeships whilst a unique Supply Chain Institute will help companies develop the necessary skills to pre-qualify and successfully gain work on hub South West projects.
Collaborating with key supply chain members is critical to our success in delivering integrated, whole life, value for money solutions.
