Welcome to the Lloyds Bank Advanced Manufacturing Training Centre

Developing the way things will be made tomorrow 

The Lloyds Bank Advanced Manufacturing Training Centre plays a key role in redressing the skills gap in the High Value Manufacturing sector. It will develop the vital skills required from the next generation of manufacturing engineers and technicians to deliver the technologies of the future.

We are at the heart of an industry demanding a specialised set of skills that meet the needs of more complex and intuitive manufactured goods. Our advanced technician apprentice programme offers a unique opportunity to develop a strong engineering expertise, giving young engineers the chance to build a career in an exciting, thriving and innovative environment.



The Vision

The Lloyds Bank Advanced Manufacturing Training Centre develops people that the UK manufacturing industry needs to stay globally competitive. 

The purpose-built facility is located next to the pioneering MTC and links the development of world-class manufacturing technology with the development of people. The new training centre revolutionises engineering training and also makes a significant contribution towards solving the skills shortages which have been prevalent in manufacturing for many years. As well as training young engineers in an unrivalled training environment, the centre supplies SMEs and companies in the manufacturing supply chain with skilled apprentices, and up-skills those already working in manufacturing.


This state-of-the-art building was formally opened in November 2015 and also houses MTC Conferences, a unique and contemporary conference venue designed to deliver extraordinary events.


“Supporting the manufacturing sector has been a key priority since Lloyds Bank was formed over 250 years ago and investing in the right skills is critical to the development of a high-value manufacturing economy. We share the centre’s vision in helping young people acquire the necessary skills, ensuring they are well placed to enter the workforce, which in turn will help Britain prosper."
