The Diploma in Manufacturing is a nationally-recognised qualification that is geared towards helping develop important management and people skills that are vital to a challenging manufacturing environment. Leadership plays an important part in the course as well as the latest manufacturing techniques.
The Certificate in Manufacturing Management, meanwhile, teaches the critical manufacturing methods and technical management skills which are vital for influencing, team building and managing change. The course is particularly ideal for anyone tasked with improving process performance in leaner organisations.
Commenting on the courses, Chief Executive Officer at The Manufacturing Institute, Julie Madigan, said: "These lean management courses have not only been designed by experienced professionals in the manufacturing industry, who understand what is required to achieve success, but they are both quality assured by the University of Manchester and led by leading academics and experts from the manufacturing industry including Hewlett Packarad and Unisys. For managers looking to develop their skill sets and further their careers, these courses could be an important step."
These courses also offer a number of benefits for companies operating in the manufacturing sector, including improved performance and increased efficiency. It could also help to significantly reduce recruitment costs by allowing them to promote from within, as staff who achieve the diploma or certificate will have learnt valuable new skills that are designed to fit the sector's requirements.
Both courses also include practical assignments that are specifically designed to benefit the student's employers, so even though the course requires an investment the rewards begin immediately.
