The MTC to recruit 200 apprentices in 2020

The Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) is to recruit more than 200 apprentices for next year’s 2020 intake.

100 of the new apprentices will be based at the Advanced Manufacturing Training Centre at Ansty Park, Coventry, with a further 100 at the MTC-run Oxfordshire Advanced Skills in Abingdon.

The apprentices will be trained in a wide variety of manufacturing disciplines from fundamental engineering skills and principles, to using some of the most up-to-date manufacturing technology.

Paul Rowlett, managing director of the Advanced Manufacturing Training Centre, said the fast-growing MTC had gained a reputation for supporting the engineering sector with high quality apprenticeship training programmes.

“Our purpose is to seed the manufacturing sector with a pipeline of capable engineering technicians. Our apprenticeship programme creates fully rounded, business ready, skilled engineers capable of giving employers a genuine return on investment and business impact, helping them become increasingly globally competitive,” he said.

The MTC was founded by the University of Birmingham, Loughborough University, the University of Nottingham and TWI Ltd. The MTC’s industrial members include some of the UK’s major global manufacturers.

The MTC aims to provide a competitive environment to bridge the gap between university-based research and the development of innovative manufacturing solutions, in line with the government’s manufacturing strategy. The MTC is part of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, supported by Innovate UK.
