MTC to Launch AM Apprenticeships

Thursday, April 5, 2018

The Manufacturing Technology Center (MTC) has announced that it will launch in September the United Kingdom’s first-ever AM apprenticeships. Home to the National Centre for Additive Manufacturing (NCAM), MTC, with locations in Conventry, Liverpool and Aberdeen, UK, was founded by the University of Birmingham, Loughborough University, the University of Nottingham and TWI Ltd., a research and technology organization in Cambridge.

Martin Dury, MTC’s learning design manager, says the apprenticeship programs will address the current shortage of skills in this vital area of advanced manufacturing. "While there are a number of additive training courses currently available in the UK, these tend to be focused on equipment use,” says Dury. “The MTC is aiming to provide additive manufacturing apprenticeships that will cover the whole range of competencies necessary for specific occupations.” It also will offer accredited short courses for existing staff.
