Manufacturing is currently enjoying an increased interest as a career choice, and for good reason too! With plenty of pathways available to those who train in Process Manufacturing, getting started in this innovative, creative field is a great idea.

Level 3 Supply Chain Practitioner Apprentice at Kautex Textron (UK) Ltd
I wanted to get into the world of work rather than continuing in the class room full time. An apprenticeship allowed me to achieve this and gain further qualifications at the same time. As an apprentice you get all three things you need for a great start to a career – experience, qualifications and money. It’s a brilliant choice.
