  • PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES OF MANUFACTURINGA Guide for Parents and Guardians

  • This guide will provide parents and guardians with an overview of what can be expected throughout this exciting stage in their son and daughter’s training at the home of Great British manufacturing.

    About MTC ApprenticeshipsThe MTC Apprenticeship Programme has an unrivalled track record of producing the next generation of engineers that go on to make a significant impact on the future of UK manufacturing and engineering.

    On the MTC Apprenticeship Programme, your son or daughter will train in three key areas of advanced manufacturing: Advanced Machining, Intelligent Automation and Metrology. They will learn in an environment that is at the forefront of technological advancements and be exposed to new and emerging technologies which only enhances their training.

    Our apprenticeships are fully-funded, with each of our apprentices being employed full-time from when they first start the course by one of our illustrious partner employers.

    About ApprenticeshipsThe Engineering and Manufacturing sector is now the third most popular sector for apprenticeships with 59,000 people embarking on new apprenticeship programmes in 2017/18.

    Apprenticeships are becoming increasingly popular as they offer the opportunity to gain an industry recognised qualification whilst not incurring the hefty debts that are often associated with university.

    The Government’s new Apprenticeship Levy is targeted at funding three million apprenticeships by 2020 and an MTC Apprenticeship gives the next generation of engineers the opportunity to earn while they learn.

  • What is an apprenticeship?An apprenticeship is a full-time job,

    fully-funded by Government, combining employment with a structured 4 year

    training programme.

    At the end of their programme, our apprentices leave with a nationally

    recognised qualification, together with a valuable springboard into

    their chosen career.

  • BehaviourWhilst at the AMTC, Apprentices are reminded that they are representing their employer as much as they are MTC. They therefore will be expected to conduct themselves in an appropriate manner.

    EquipmentWhile on-site with us, MTC has a legal responsibility to ensure apprentices have a safe working environment and will provide the necessary tools and equipment.

    When training in the workshop, it is vital that PPE and safety footwear are worn at all times. Safety goggles and any other personal protective equipment must also be worn when directed.

    What qualification can my son / daughter achieve?

    Level 3 Diploma in Engineering Technical Certificate

    Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Engineering Technical Support

    SalaryYour son or daughter has full employment status; this means they will be paid a competitive salary by the business they are working for. As a member of staff, they will also be entitled to salary increases when milestones are achieved. The minimum wage for apprentices is £3.90 per hour – many employers do however pay more than this.

    Please note: if you are currently receiving benefits and your son / daughter starts an apprenticeship, this may have an impact on your benefit income.

    HolidayAs your son or daughter has full employment status and is recognised as a regular employer, they will accrue paid holiday through their apprenticeship.

    Where does the training take place?All training will take place at the Advanced Manufacturing Training Centre (AMTC) at Ansty Park in Coventry.

    The course lasts 4 years with your son or daughter undertaking their first year at our training centre completing the foundation skills training as well as starting their Level 3 technical qualification.

    In the second year, they will commence the development phase of their apprenticeship programme returning to their company full time whilst attending the AMTC on a block release basis.

    In year 3, apprentices will work in company to complete their level 3 work-based competency diploma. They will also start preparing for their End Point Assessment.

    Year 4 will see the successful completion of an End Point Assessment leading to professional recognition by a relevant Engineering Institution.

    How long does the course last?

    Which modules will be studied?On the MTC Apprenticeship programme, your son or daughter will study just some of the below outlined modules:

    Milling
