Skills are at the heart of every individual's sense of self-worth and are central to the success of our economy. The need to provide people with opportunities to develop the right skills for fulfilling and productive lives is a constant challenge. Sanjeev and Nicola Gupta therefore decided in early 2017 to establish a charity with the purpose of developing the skills needed to help people start or continue working in specific industries, notably engineering, metals and renewable energy. Already we're making good progress; we're particularly proud to develop our first partnership with Industrial Cadets, a great initiative inspired by HRH The Prince of Wales and delivered by the Engineering Development Trust. This and other partnerships will allow the Foundation to realise it's Vision of identifying and developing the potential in people to allow them to succeed in life.
