Advanced Manufacturing Training Centre.
North West Training Council has announced its relocation to high-tech premises in the north of Liverpool.
NWTC is developing a state of the art engineering training facilities in the Wellington Employment Park based in Liverpool 5.
We are now at the start of an exciting new chapter in NWTC’s journey. With the help of Liverpool Combined Authority, we will soon be moving to a brand new advanced manufacturing engineering training centre, equipped with the latest state-of-the-art engineering equipment. The new premises are designed to give apprentices optimum hands-on experience and training, so furnishing them with the professional skills and competence employers need to compete nationally and globally.
NWTC has an ambitious vision for the future of engineering apprentice training in Liverpool City Region, and our relocation is a significant step in the realisation of this vision. We have a great engineering heritage in the region, thanks to the dedication and determination of outstanding employers. NWTC is committed to supporting Liverpool City Region to become a global engineering industry hub, and we look forward to continuing this journey with new and existing customers.
As well as working with Large and SME companies and individuals, the new premises will encourage those paying the apprenticeship levy to invest it in up-to-date training methods through employer designed apprenticeships. NWTC will be at the forefront of helping the engineering, manufacturing, electrotechnical and associated industry sectors up-skill the employees of the future. Apprentices will be exposed to highly relevant working practices, helping them become the next generation of high flyers. This reflects the employer-driven culture at NWTC.
The new apprenticeship standards on offer within engineering include mechatronics (robotics and automation), maintenance, electrical and conventional and CNC machining practices, fabrication & welding and the new food and drink standard. Commercial and bespoke courses cover areas such as electrical and mechanical plus training in pneumatics and hydraulics. All courses can be delivered to national employers and also smaller businesses.
