Fee: £375.00 +VAT(Each)

We had worked with The Manufacturing Institute’s Peter Sussex before and we totally trusted him and liked his style. He’s very easy to get on with and his Shingo knowledge is very good. He knows what he is talking about.

Ray Howcroft - Lean Enterprise manager at Shingo Prize winning Ball Beverage Packaging, Europe

I would recommend the ARTL programme to other manufacturers without question. I liked the venue, I liked the people and I liked the work. It was a very well structured course and ticked all the boxes for me to improve my role at Rettenmaier.

Sean Collinson, Production Manager - Rettenmaier UK Manufacturing Limited

This is the best lean manager’s course that I’ve ever been on. It was excellent and a lot of that was down to the people who were delivering it. They know a lot about our industry and it felt like they were talking directly to us.

Brian McKay, Operations Director - Smurfit Kappa

There were over a 100 kids taking part and every single one was a superstar! It’s a great thing for employers to take part in. I would encourage anyone employed in manufacturing to come and take part in a Make It Challenge. You’ll feel like the stupidest person in the room - but you’ll love it!

John Grimshaw - Manufacturing applications engineer

I would definitely recommend Six Sigma Green Belt if you are heading towards a CI role or a production role.

Andrew Moule, Production Manager - Muller

I would recommend the MSc without doubt and have now got an appetite to continue learning. It’s completely changed my view on leadership and how I present myself to others.

Gavin Thatcher, MD - Stead McAlpin

Newsprinters was the most impressive facility I have seen, and the highlight of the study tour. I was blown away. If I could bottle this up and sell it I would make a fortune. I came away highly motivated. We will steal your ideas with pride.

OpEx study tour delegate

One of the best things about the Diploma is the exceptionally high quality of the deliverers. They are proven industry experts. I also really enjoyed studying with a great bunch of people. I learned as much from the class discussions as the material.

Phil Buxton, Site Crane Equipment Programme Lead - Sellafield

We were doing some work with the Growth Accelerator and they recommended The Manufacturing Institute’s Accelerated Route to Lean Manufacturing programme. I’ve never been on as course as good – and I’ve been on a lot.

Nick Walker, Operations Manager - Screentek

I would recommend the MSc as it is tailored really well for manufacturers. We actually have three people from the plant doing the MSc and that reflects the emphasis we place on developing our people.

Amanda Perry, Plant Manager - Ecolab
