South West College and Mannok are delighted to announce a successful collaboration as part of which employees were provided with ILM Level 3 Leadership and Management training. Graduates were recently presented with their certificates at Mannok’s Innovation Academy in Derrylin.

Mannok is one of the UK and Ireland’s most diverse and experienced construction and food packaging manufacturers, producing a wide range of premium building materials including high-performance rigid insulation, aircrete thermal blocks, cement, rooftiles and precast concrete products, as well as sustainable plastic food packaging.

Every Mannok employee is encouraged and supported throughout their career journey with a range of development opportunities available. The goal is to provide rewarding career opportunities through continuous learning and skills development that will enrich their lives and help all employees achieve their career goals.

Nicola Quinn, Business Development and Skills Manager, South West College, commented;

“Mannok saw the potential in their employees and gave them the opportunity to improve their management skills in order for them to grow with the business. This investment in skills development by Mannok demonstrates their commitment to their staff and recognises their impact on the future success of the company.

South West College is dedicated to meeting the training needs of local employers and will work with businesses to design, build and deliver a tailored training plan to meet their needs.”

Caroline McCaffrey, HR Manager, Mannok added:

"Mannok is committed to investing in our people, and so we nurture the long-standing relationship we have with SWC in order to meet the often-bespoke training needs of our team. We were delighted with the take up of this learning opportunity and are aiming to roll out this opportunity to other employees with another cohort starting in September. We look forward to seeing newly acquired learning employed across the various aspects of the business.”
