See the results of your work with a manufacturing, processing and logistics apprenticeship, as you turn raw materials into products
Manufacturing is the process of adding value to raw materials by turning them into products. Almost every object we use has been manufactured in some way, either in a large factory or a small workshop, helping supply other industries with the materials needed to do their job.
Manufacturing, processing and logistics are responsible for almost all goods in some way, be it the bricks and concrete used in construction, the food stocked in supermarkets, or the drugs used to treat patients.
Manufacturing and processing apprenticeships create parts or products from raw materials and other inputs, with a focus on textiles, food, furniture, glass, metals and printing, among others, and offer the opportunity to train in different roles, from operating huge machines in a factory to working with hand tools in a small workshop. While logistics transports and stores goods as they move through the supply chain, with a range of functions, such as inventory management, warehousing, distribution, transport, and customer service.
Among the manufacturing, processing and logistics apprenticeships on offer in this sector is the brewer role, which encompasses different tasks and responsibilities depending on the employer, ranging from large-scale producers to micro-breweries. Alternatively, you could become a manufacturing engineer and support the activities involved in bringing design programmes into manufacture. This role is pivotal to the launch planning and smooth delivery of exciting new products or product refresh programmes.
There is also the food and drink advanced engineer degree apprenticeship, which will train you to deliver efficient, effective and high performance food and drink production processes and systems, as well as the international freight forwarding specialist apprenticeship, an administrative role in which you’ll ensure that the company you work for and its clients remain compliant with all applicable customs, import and export laws and regulations.
