Training Institutions Location Mapping and Spatial Analyses, HEART Trust NTA

 

HEART in its efforts to develop a workforce development system, catering to both the young and old, has to identify its market and ensure accessibility by same. To effectively respond to the demand for skills training, HEART engaged MGI to evaluate the current distribution of its training facilities and how skills are distributed throughout them. MGI utilized GIS to provide the HEART Trust NTA with an evidenced‐based approach to decision making.  Various factors such as proximity to roadways and other training facilities as well as population demographics are known to influence the demand for particular skills and hence determine the suitability of an area to host a training institution.  MGI was able to assess the distribution of training facilities and identify their current and potential service areas.
