Warwickshire’s newest training centre offers inspiring environment for discovery, discussion and development

With work now completed at the Lloyds Bank Advanced Manufacturing Training Centre, staff are moving in and preparing to welcome the first cohort of apprentices in September.

The two-year project to expand the MTC campus will play a major role in tackling the manufacturing skills shortage; giving new recruits the opportunity to train and learn alongside some of the world’s leading experts and prominent academic partners in manufacturing and engineering.

Complementing the adjoining MTC building in a campus-style setting, this inspiring centre has also been specially designed by architects Fairhursts Design Group to provide a stimulating environment to host conferences, meetings and special events.

An unrivalled combination of location, flexibility, cutting-edge technology and a team dedicated to making each event unique and memorable, offers an exciting new alternative for organisers looking to host events in the heart of the Midlands.

The MTC conference and events team brings a wealth of experience in delivering first-class hospitality, gained from working with some of the most prestigious venues in the UK.

Conference and events manager, Tom Ruck, said:

“Our priority is to ensure our guests’ experience leaves a lasting impression from the moment they arrive.”

Formerly operations manager at De Vere Venues with a decade of experience working at the high end of the hospitality industry, Ruck understands how location and bespoke customer service can give a venue those all-important key points of difference:

“Delivering quality and high standards is at the heart of everything we do. By giving clients peace of mind that everything is taken care of, they are free to focus on achieving the objectives of the day.
“The impressive setting of the training centre cannot fail to inspire those who come here. When we host an event, guests can have access to a real-life workshop to see how MTC engineers are developing techniques and processes that will set new standards in manufacturing. This is a real wow factor for our delegates.”


Our partnership with the MTC provides us with a collaborative environment, allowing for the realisation of a joint vision for UK Manufacturing. ATS are able to tap into the wealth of knowledge and experience that both the MTC, and other member organisations offer, which in turn delivers real value from our investment.
