About the programme

You will undertake both classroom and off the job skills training, roughly 4 days a week undertaking practical training in production areas and 1 day based in the classroom, learning production theory wither in College or our Dojo.

To develop your teamwork, communication and leadership skills, you will also spend time away from site on an outward bound residential. You will be taught about the Toyota Production System and our core philosophies of Continuous Improvement and Respect for People.
