Approved Provider to the NMCL programme
Interchange is proud to have been awarded Approved Provider status to the National Manufacturing Competitiveness Levels (NMCL) programme for the Automotive and Aerospace sectors. We will provide modules for business ethics and corporate social responsibility within the Competitive Strategy and Management Systems element of the programme.
NMCL is designed to improve competitiveness, raise workforce capacity and increase productivity thereby boosting UK exports and economic growth. It is recognised that business ethics and integrity play an important part for companies exporting to higher risk of corruption markets, some of which will be key to the UK’s export growth post Brexit.
The NMCL programme will be match-funded by the UK government and led by industry. With the backing of some of UK’s largest manufacturers, the programme has been jointly developed by the automotive and aerospace sectors and in future may include other manufacturing sectors such as rail and defence.
NMCL is designed to help manufacturers of all sizes develop the specific business capabilities they need to improve their business performance. Projects are tailor-made for each manufacturer and focus on boosting competitiveness, increasing ‘value-add’ and winning more orders at home and overseas.
Companies can declare an initial expression of interest in participating in the NMCL programme by completing a short form on the NMCL website.
