Have you ever wondered how something was made? Take your phone for example, where do all the individual parts come from? They were all manufactured. Almost everything we see and use on a day to day basis has been manufactured.

Manufacturing is where raw materials, such as metal and plastic, are transformed into finished goods on a large scale. There may be several steps and different parts from a variety of manufacturers involved in creating the final product. Eventually, the finished product is sold to wholesalers, who in turn sell them to retailers, who in turn sell them to us.

Case Study

Natalie Duddridge at Express Banners

Natalie’s previous experience with education at school had not been successful and Natalie felt badly let down by the school and education system. Which meant she was unsure about going onto the apprenticeship due to a lack of self-confidence and self-belief in her abilities especially in an industry which historically had been male dominated. Natalie soon realised the difference between school and an apprenticeship and quickly flourished in the one to one support she received in her apprenticeship from her dedicated tutor.

Natalie soon settled into her role and apprenticeship, her confidence grew, developed her skills and became an asset to the company, to the extent that some of her work is being used as a template to help train new members of staff.
