News MTC's 'Catalyst' newsletter out now

The latest issue of Catalyst, the Manufacturing Technology Centre’s newsletter, is out now.

Catalyst brings you all the latest news and updates from across the MTC – everything from our apprenticeship programme developing the next generation of engineers, to our latest work in the development of new and innovative manufacturing processes and technologies for industry, upcoming events and conferences, news from our members and much more.

In this latest issue, we feature a range of stories including Lloyds Bank pledging £5 million extra funding for the MTC’s Advanced Manufacturing Training Centre. The funding doubles the bank’s original commitment and will support around 3,500 apprentices, graduates and engineers by 2024, providing them with the right skills to be at the forefront of manufacturing in the future. 

We also hear how the MTC is playing a leading role in transforming UK construction as part of the Construction Innovation Hub, while Paul Rowlett, Managing Director at the MTC’s Advanced Manufacturing Training Centre, discusses how the MTC has teamed up with the UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) to train apprentices in a new training academy in Oxfordshire.

With other stories including a major refurbishment of the Manufacturing Technology Centre's conference theatre to make it one of the most technologically advanced conference venues in the region, how you can boost your business with an MTC business-ready apprentice, and MTC employer partner Meggitt opening a new £130 million facility At Ansty Park, there's a lot going on at the MTC!

The MTC is an incredible place to complete a graduate placement. It is an amazing opportunity to work with clever people every day and share projects.
We are managing the latest generation of equipment in order to develop new solutions for our future problems.
