The MTC commercial training offering continues to go from strength to strength with many exciting new developments over the past few months.

We have launched our new, fully integrated Learning Management System (LMS), allowing learners to log in and manage their learning once signed up to an MTC course. The system provides users with a birds-eye view of their learning, with the ability to track progress and learn (where relevant) at their own pace.

Our in-house team is also expanding and our expertise growing, with new instructional designers working with MTC subject matter experts to develop an increasingly diverse range of courses, as well as being able to create bespoke courses for clients.

Our in-house expertise stretches across the entire spectrum of course development, design and delivery. The process is thorough and truly end-to-end, so you know with any MTC course it has followed best practice guidelines from the leading experts in their respective fields from start to finish.

As part of our competency framework approach, we define the required skills, knowledge and behaviours for each given area, before designing the curriculum, training needs analysis and developing the course, again all in-house. We also pride ourselves on course delivery, with our MTC experts delivering our courses onsite or online using the latest technologies.

In pursuit of our mission to provide the Advanced Manufacturing skills needed for the technology of today and the future, we have also partnered with the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) to collaboratively deliver a full range of metallurgy courses.

And lastly, MTC Apprenticeships will now provide a springboard to CPD opportunities available with MTC Training, following the recent expansion into Degree level qualifications. This means learners can continue their journey with MTC and build on their knowledge and skills in specialist areas post-Degree level.
