Realising VW’s National Learning Centre

CMI-Synergy was appointed by Volkswagen Group (UK) Limited to help develop a business case and secure funding from its German-based parent company for a National Learning Centre.

The aim was to consolidate VW’s UK-based training into a single, world-class training facility thus demonstrating the company’s commitment to existing staff whilst offering a non-salaried benefit to entice the finest UK talent.

Working across VW’s brand range with Group Finance Team Stakeholders, CMI developed both the vision and a detailed analysis for the unique type of facility the company needed. Clear justification, benefits and costs had to be set against the Centre’s estimated construction and operational fees.

CMI’s business case won approval and the necessary funding was secured to take the project to the next phase.
