The Manufacturing Institute (TMI), one of GC Business Growth Hub’s sister organisations, is restarting its popular range of training courses for manufacturers in September.
Part of the Growth Company group alongside GC Business Growth Hub, TMI offers high-impact training and development courses to help UK manufacturers gain the skills and knowledge they need to overcome challenges and increase their competitiveness in the 21st century.
Having paused its face-to-face training courses during the COVID-19 pandemic, a number of popular programmes are restarting again from September, along with TMI’s successful online bootcamps.
Adrian Healey, Head of Business Development at TMI, said:“Now is a particularly good time for manufacturers to look at upskilling their staff as we build back from COVID-19. Jobs are being created again, and new people coming into businesses is a good opportunity to embed Lean, Six Sigma, and manufacturing leadership skills as part of the induction or training process.
“Our twice-yearly face-to-face courses haven’t been running during the pandemic, so now is the perfect time to get booked in as they restart in September. Many of our courses will also continue to be available in a virtual format.”

Priced at £500+VAT, this course is particularly popular with smaller manufacturers. Adrian explained:
“The self study practitioner course has proven very popular with SME manufacturers. It’s an online course you can start whenever you like which bridges the gap between our four main programmes, and it dovetails nicely with the fully funded support available to SMEs in Greater Manchester from the Hub’s Manufacturing Service.”
