The Manufacturing Technology Centre’s Advanced Manufacturing Training Centre (AMTC) has been presented with a top award by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE).
The AMTC — supported by Lloyds Bank, which is contributing £10 million towards its apprenticeship training programmes — has received the institution’s Advanced Apprenticeship Provider of the Year award.
This was presented at a ceremony held at the IMechE headquarters in London. The award recognises the role employers and educators play in encouraging young people into engineering apprenticeships and supporting them throughout their training.
Paul Rowlett, managing director of the AMTC (www.the-amtc.co.uk
), said the award was a significant feather in the AMTC’s cap, expanding its apprenticeship provision beyond its Coventry base into Oxfordshire (in partnership with Oxford Advanced Skills).
He said: “Our apprenticeship programmes are seeding the manufacturing sector with a pipeline of capable engineers and technicians who can give a genuine return on investment and business impact.
"We will be taking on a further 200 apprentices in the 2020 intake, who will be trained in a wide variety of manufacturing disciplines from basic engineering to using some of the most advanced manufacturing technology in existence.”
