Level 2 Apprenticeships


The MTC is at the forefront of technological advancements and apprentices that train on our apprenticeship programme are exposed to these new and emerging technologies which can only add value to your organisation. 

Our Level 2 Lean Manufacturing Operative Apprenticeship builds on a strong foundation of traditional skills over-layed with themes of emerging technologies equipping apprentices for a rapidly developing engineering sector. The programme enables both your new and existing employees to progress their careers by developing into multi-skilled operators through process ownership.

During their fifteen month apprenticeship, learners will spend most of their time on-site with your business and will travel to MTC Liverpool for additional training on a day release model. During this time they will have one-to-one support from an industry expert, gaining the confidence, skills and knowledge to carry out their work safely while helping you to optimise your business’s production. 

Upon completion, learners will be able to progress to a Level 3 apprenticeship in a number of different pathways, gaining even more valuable knowledge to benefit your business.

What is an Apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships are government funded work-based training programmes to help give your team the sustainable skills they need to succeed in your business.

Whatever the size of your organisation, skilled and motivated employees are the key to business success and apprenticeships provide a cost-effective solution to upskilling your current employees.

Provided that your chosen candidate meets the programme selection criteria, they could be enrolled within weeks and in time for our next intake starting in September.

Contact our team for more information.

At MTC Training we also offer a comprehensive range of courses for manufacturing engineers and technicians at all levels, so if an apprenticeship isn’t the right route for now, contact the MTC Training team to discuss how we can support your wider training requirements.

MTC Training can support your business through the Apprenticeship Levy.

  • 0.5% of your pay bill will go towards the apprentice levy if your annual pay bill is £3 million+
  • Over the duration of the apprenticeship, our Lean Manufacturing Operative Standard is funded at £6,000 of levy funding
  • £1000 government incentive is available for employing a 16 to 18-year-old

Ideally, candidates will already have achieved English and maths at GCSE grade 4 (C) or Functional Skills Level 1.

If not, Functional Skills Level 1 in English and maths will be included in the apprenticeship programme.

"We have been extremely impressed by the apprentices that have joined us at FANUC through the MTC Apprenticeship Programme. They’ve been able to pick up advanced tasks and roles within the company very quickly and they’ve demonstrated high levels of professionalism and readiness for industry from the start."
