Fresh from employing 39 new apprentices last month, the Ansty Park-based R&D facility will be holding its latest open evening as it looks to highlight the range of career opportunities in advanced manufacturing.

Companies including Triumph, Fanuc and DMG Mori, who have all employed MTC apprentices, will also be present to offer advice and showcase engineering careers across a range of sectors including Formula 1, aerospace, automotive, rail and automation.

The opening evening is aimed at all prospective students and parents from across the Midlands, to discover more about the three-year programme on offer at the MTC’s Lloyds Bank Advanced Manufacturing Training Centre (AMTC).

The fact-finding event runs from 5pm - 7:30pm on 10 October and will feature live demonstrations, a virtual reality welding challenge, the chance to view the latest technology and equipment in the training centre and a chance to meet current apprentices.

Explains AMTC managing director Paul Rowlett: “Our training programme develops skills and competencies that are needed by industry. There are great opportunities for our apprentices to move into secure, well-paid jobs and excellent career prospects.

“Our open evening enables visitors to see just how varied and fulfilling engineering can be. Few other industries promise such strong job opportunities or the chance to be involved in the discovery of new technologies.”

The open evening will also promote a number of business administration apprenticeship opportunities working within the MTC campus. To register for a free place at the open evening, click here.
