The Construction Industry Training Board is undertaking a £1.2million project to increase the skills capacity in offsite manufacturing and construction which is revolutionising the way houses, schools and hospitals are built.
As part of this project the Manufacturing Technology Centre is developing a set of free high-quality training courses and materials to up-skill trainers in both education and industry in offsite manufacturing and construction.
Offsite construction is the manufacture and assembly of construction components ahead of installation onsite. CITB research has shown that offsite or modular construction can increase productivity, and reduce timescales and build costs compared with traditional methods, with nearly half of employers expecting to use offsite techniques within the next five years.
The projects will be pioneering a collaborative approach involving employers, providers, contractors and leading innovation organisations that will bring new, free, innovative training materials and courses to industry.
As part of this project, the MTC is inviting learning providers to attend a one day workshop to learn more about the MTC, the project and to participate in workshops that will guide the direction of the project.
The event is free to attend but registration is essential. We have limited spaces available so book early to avoid disappointment.
Please note: All attendees will need to bring photographic ID with them on the day. This is a security measure and is required in order for you to gain access to the MTC building. This should be in the form of:
- Valid International Passport Only
- UK Driving Licence (Photographic)
- Photographic Residency Card
- Photographic Naturalisation Card
Due to MTC security requirements, we require a minimum of 20 working days to allow entry for Russian and Chinese nationals.
