Manufacturing requires designers and scientists. Those who begin working for a companies without a degree can still become managers and even engineers. Crafting a career in manufacturing doesn’t require a lengthy academic record or fully-developed engineering skills.
There are so many opportunities available to young people interested in manufacturing. Businesses are willing to invest in their future. Thus, many businesses are willing to nurture a young person beginning their career.
Are you ready for a career in manufacturing?
Almost everyone is qualified to begin a career in manufacturing. There is often an opportunity to start from the shop floor.
Many company’s have their own job-specific training to ensure that you can operate their machinery and follow procedures designed around their business. This is useful to the manufacturer. It equips you with the skills to perform a task in their operation. However, there is the option to couple your on-the-job training whilst earning valuable qualifications that will help you create a great foundation for a career in manufacturing.
We are talking about apprenticeships of course.
Apprenticeships aren’t simply a training course that teaches the very basics of working in a factory. They are the foundation of a progressive journey through a business or industry. With that in mind, there are a variety of different careers your learning journey can lead you to.
The skills you gain from an apprenticeship could lead you to a leadership-based career. The knowledge and awareness you will gain will support your progression into a supervisor or management role.
Your apprenticeship could lead you to a career in engineering manufacture.
There are false assumptions that some people make about apprenticeships, and we should address them.
An apprenticeship is not a glorified training course. It is not a way for companies to hire cheap labour either. Apprenticeships require investment from both the learner and the employer.
And part of that takes place in the classroom.
Yes, a company employs you to work on the shop floor. But, you’re not restricted to working a shift for the employer. This couldn’t be further from the truth.
Yes, there is a large practical and vocational element to your apprenticeships. However, you won’t abandon your other transferable skills at the wayside. An apprentice is required to achieve a GCSE grade C (or equivalent) in English and Maths to complete their course. There is some other functional learning that is assessed throughout your apprenticeship. This includes critical thinking and environmental awareness.
To study as an apprentice, you will need employment of at least 30 hours a week. You may already have an employer that wants you to begin an apprenticeship, but if not, you can still contact us to see how we can help.
We will work with you, and your employer, to design the ideal apprenticeship to suit your role. Throughout your course, we are by your side to offer holistic support and advice.
