College launches new course to bridge skills gap in advanced manufacturing

← Back to News Stories

2nd October 2019

The City of Liverpool College launched an innovative new course recently aimed at bridging the gap in skilled workers in the advanced manufacturing industry.

The level 3 Robotics and Automation course, run in partnership with manufacturing firm CNC Robotics, was created as a direct result of the rise in manufacturers moving from more traditional methods to digitisation of their processes.

The course, which starts in October, is only the second of its kind in the country and will allow employers to upskill their existing workforce to meet the demands of the industry, and create new opportunities for highly skilled workers.

Principal at The City of Liverpool College, Elaine Bowker, said: “The rise of automation is now fast paced and businesses need to adapt. As a leading college in the region, it’s our responsibility to develop a pipeline of talent that employers need to help them grow.

“Through partnerships such as this we can deliver innovative and relevant courses to our students, allowing them to secure well-paid jobs with longevity.

“This unique partnership has been 12 months in the making and combines our quality teaching with CNC Robotics’ advanced technology, to provide students with the best possible learning and employers with quality staff to meet their needs now and long into the future.”

This flexible, eight-week course provides a Level 3 qualification in robotics and automation, and allows learners to choose either units from the qualification that are relevant to their role, or complete the full qualification.
