Course Overview

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.

The training covers health and safety aspects, use of tools, equipment and machines, quality standards of the company and correct assembly and processing techniques. We will be able to produce personalised training programmes to suit you and the learner.

What will they achieve?

NLTG will provide an assessment and depending on the learners current level and abilities they will take the following routes:

Intermediate Level Apprenticeship:

• Lean Manufacturing Operative Apprenticeship Standard
• Functional Skills Level 2

What training will they receive?

As the employer, you will be responsible for most of the basic knowledge and training. There will be no need for the learner to attend a college because they will be visited in the workplace by a qualified NLTG Tutor every 4 - 6 weeks.

Why not have a look at our Why employ an Apprentice? or Why upskill your workforce? pages. These will give you more about what Apprenticeships involve and especially the benefits of incorporating them into your business.

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. This 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.
