AMRC Training Centre Manufacturing Camps

Description

The development of our young engineers today is fundamental to the success of the industry tomorrow. The AMRC Manufacturing Camp is an opportunity for young people to get a head start and undertake a one-week employability and work experience placement within an engineering and manufacturing environment. 

We provide a range of opportunities during the manufacturing camp that will:

  • Provide young people with the opportunity to work alongside manufacturing apprentices, in a fantastic training facility.

  • Help young people to gain an understanding of apprenticeship pathways and the career progression from them.

  • Allow young people to talk to current apprentices.

  • Help prepare young people for applying for future job opportunities, through development of CVs.

  • Give young people experience of interviews with feedback to assist them for future opportunities.

Who is it for?

Young people interested in a career in engineering and manufacturing (aged 14-18) and schools who wish to organise structured work placements.

Apprentice Mentoring: Engineering the Next Generation

Apprentice Mentoring: Engineering the Next Generation

Description

Employing apprentices is a useful way to grow your business and plan for the succession of staff. To maximise the potential, a structured training programme delivered by a good provider is critical. Additionally a structured, in-house, support system of mentoring is equally as essential.

This will ensure that your apprentices have every opportunity to be successful in your business and contribute to your bottom line as quickly as possible.

Course aims

This programme will provide an understanding of what is included within the mentoring process for businesses employing apprentices. It will cover attributes required, the mentoring process and how to work with assessors.

Testimonial

"Thank you all for making today's session so successful, well done!
It is great to hear that everyone was so enthusiastic and realise the importance of supporting the apprentice scheme.
Your work today supports our future growth by investing your valuable times and skills in the development of our future skilled people."
