PARTNERSHIPS are a major focus of the ISETS Strategy. The MMF has always seen partnerships, strategic thinking and planning as central to ensuring the best possible outcome for our clients. Partnerships are formed with private industry, government, non-profit organizations, and training & educational institutions, as well as internal departments, to combine resources, establish links to meaningful employment and create unique training opportunities. Our partnerships are designed to address current and anticipated labour market demands and to enhance the knowledge, skills and employability of our clients. Through a variety of successful partnerships, our clients have a history of answering employers’ needs for qualified staff, while securing worthwhile careers for themselves. The MMF will continue to pursue an expanding range of partnership opportunities, with the goal of effectively meeting the changing needs of both the local labour market and its clients.
