Use the new manufacturing qualification matched with your exact business needs to drive your lean journey


The UK’s Manufacturing Industry is highly regarded worldwide for its innovation and operational excellence. To stay at the forefront we constantly need to be developing skills and knowledge across all levels of our manufacturing businesses.

Written by a trailblazer group of manufacturers from a cross section of sectors the new Manufacturing Operative qualification is designed to develop multi-skilled operators through process ownership and lean awareness.

This new qualification is tailor-made to help drive and embed lean thinking and implementation within your organisation. By aligning the learning to specific projects we can tailor the content and targets to the specific needs of each company. This creates an extremely engaging and empowering programme for each employee by keeping the training experiential.
