In line with Government guidelines and the new restrictions, we have closed the Advanced Manufacturing Training Centre for onsite delivery. The training centre will remain closed to all apprentices, employers and members of the public until further notice. We will communicate directly with our employers and learners about how programmes will continue remotely during this period of national lockdown.

As with the first lockdown, we have taken learning online. All apprentices have access to our E-Learning courses, have been set Knowledge Questions to support their unit completion and have been tasked with regularly emailing work to their trainers/assessors to keep progressing in their apprenticeship. They will have regular touch points throughout the week with us and their training schedules will be rearranged to provide minimal disruption. For more information about our remote education offer, please click here.

Throughout the pandemic, we have been focused on supporting our apprentices and continuing their learning remotely to help achieve original target completion dates. All apprentices, even those furloughed, have continued with remote training, completing work to set objectives and timescales.

If you have any questions about your course, please contact and if you require any technical or IT support, please contact
