The Level 4 Engineering Manufacturing Technician apprenticeship is said to give learners the flexibility and capability to become high-performing technicians by exploring the integrated nature of engineering.
According to the MTC, the industry-recognised qualification provides the next development step for employees working in, or aspiring to progress into, higher level technical roles in their organisation with the potential to develop into a leadership position.
The new 30-month block release programme delivers knowledge across a range of core and specialist units. Apprentices will develop an understanding of areas including design, manufacture, maintenance, mechanical and electronic engineering.
David Hughes MBE, MD of the Advanced Manufacturing Training Centre, says: “We are committed to supporting the sector’s workforce throughout every stage of their career, from their very first steps onto the engineering pathway right through to becoming an expert in specialist emerging technology. Our new Level 4 apprenticeship will help businesses develop and retain their future leaders today, supporting Great British manufacturing to flourish.”
The MTC will deliver the programme from its two training centres; the Advanced Manufacturing Training Centre (AMTC) in Coventry, and Oxfordshire Advanced Skills (OAS) in Oxfordshire.
