North West Training Council were pleased to support Liverpool City Region Apprenticeship Hub with their skills show held at Anfield on Monday 4th February. Supported by our apprentices from both Peel Ports and Jaguar Landrover. This well organised event allowed our apprentices to engage with lots of young people looking to start a career in Engineering. Young people had the opportunity to chat with apprentices to find out about the training they would receive from NWTC and what it’s like to work for their employers; they were encouraged to ‘Have a go’ on our Petra rig conveyor system; giving them a taste of hands on practical whilst having fun.
We will be supporting further skills shows across the region please look on the Liverpool Apprenticeship Hub for dates and venues.
A time for Apprentices, their families along with their Employers and the team from NWTC to reflect and recognise the success of not only our apprentices but of NWTC.

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.
Following the launch of our Food & Drink Engineering New Standard. We are pleased to announce we will be delivering this qualification from September 2017, in both Engineering Maintenance and Multi skilled. If you require any further information please contact Sue on 0151 523 0808 .Read More
