SIP Member UCB has recently provided a comprehensive case study on its approach to skills and building talent. UCB provides opportunities for scores of budding scientists to develop their careers. The company invests heavily in the training of its staff through various internal development programmes, sponsoring or cosponsoring over 50 PhD studentships involving 16 UK universities with a £2 million UCB commitment. Since 2004, nearly 150 PhDs have been supported. Our internal PhD scheme is a much valued development vehicle for our people. In addition, we provide about six student internships per year and employ about 15 apprentices for a three year period.
