The Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) is on the lookout for 40 new apprentices to join its award-winning engineering apprenticeship programme in September.

Successful candidates will train with the latest technology and learn alongside leading experts and academic partners, equipping them with the skills needed to help British manufacturing remain competitive in global markets.

The fresh intake of budding engineers will follow the 97 apprentices already taking part in the centre’s advanced engineering training programme designed to provide premium training for the next generation of engineers and technicians.

Apprenticeships at the centre train candidates in basic engineering skills and principles, through to advanced manufacturing techniques, giving them the skills they need to work in a wide range of high tech manufacturing and digital industries.

Successful candidates will gain skills within core disciplines, including:

  • Intelligent automation technology; including robots, drives and sensor technology
  • CNC machining, including computer aided design (CAD) and advanced 3D printing
  • Metrology – measurement and inspection of materials, products, coordinate measurement machines (CMM) including 3D scanning

These skills will provide the foundation for an exciting and rewarding career in engineering.

“As part of their learning journey, apprentices will gain an insight into technicians, engineers and scientists working on challenging advanced research projects to help drive the UK manufacturing industry forward” said Paul Rowlett, MD of the MTC’s Lloyds Bank Advanced Manufacturing Training Centre.

“Recruits will also be given the opportunity to work on their own personal development projects, to really build their skills and put what they’ve learnt into practice.”

After initial training, successful candidates could continue their apprenticeship at the MTC, or in industry placements with other engineering companies. On completing the programme, apprentices can, if they wish, choose to progress to degree level education or complete alternative further qualifications, providing a further springboard to a career in a thriving sector.
