2022 has seen a successful delivery of many short courses, designed to support and encourage leadership and management in the metal casting industry.

Our Courses:

ICME continues to have a keen interest in empowering the industry workforce. Our courses have covered topics such as ‘Aspiring and Future Leaders’, where Attendees learned about team management and their leadership style, as well as improving their performance through SMART targeting. Another ICME course ‘Recruitment and Retention’, taught our delegates how succession planning, development, and a focus on employee wellbeing can help the retention of technical skills in their business. Also delivered this year so far are the courses ‘Coaching for success’ and ‘Driving Change Management. The first course guided participants on how to develop their coaching and communication skillsets, whilst the latter course gave an insight into creative thinking approaches during a change management process.

Our Delegate Feedback:

We have received fantastic feedback on our course content; responses include:
