PUBLIC PROGRAMMES

As an organisation committed to educating and inspiring people across the manufacturing industry, The Manufacturing Institute operate a range of high-quality public programmes. Whatever your level of experience, we have training courses designed to enrich your industry knowledge.

Our public programmes are open to both organisations looking to upskill their workforce, and individuals wanting to give themselves the best chance of success in their manufacturing career. Each focuses on the development of particular skills.

Our Six Sigma programmes, for example, are designed to pass on the principles of this revolutionary concept in the context of manufacturing. We offer all three Six Sigma training tiers: Six Sigma yellow belt (introductory), Six Sigma green belt (advanced), and Six Sigma black belt (expert).

Our Team Leader Development Programme, on the other hand, transfers essential headship skills to anyone looking to enter management training. Hosted over a period of 8 weeks, the course combines lean manufacturing techniques with crucial interpersonal skills, allowing participants to emerge on the other side as strong leaders.

For anyone looking to adopt lean approaches, our Accelerated Route To Lean Manufacturing is the perfect programme. Sessions are interwoven between working weeks, allowing people to gain a strong grasp of lean manufacturing principles over a period of less than three months.

In conjunction with Lancaster University we also operate the renowned MSc Manufacturing Leadership training scheme; a course that rewards graduates with a Level 7 Manufacturing Masters qualification.
