Next Gen Makers helps UK manufacturing and engineering firms to run winning apprenticeship schemes via benchmarking, sharing best practice sharing and Kitemark accreditation.
Through our Engineering Apprenticeships: Best Practice Programme and employer Kitemark initiative, our goal is to enable engineering and manufacturing firms of all sizes to deliver the best possible experience for apprentices and become great at attracting and retaining skilled apprentice talent.
In collaboration with our strategic partner Make UK, our ‘Engineering Apprenticeships: Employer Kitemark’ recognises exemplar employers of engineering apprentices; helping young people to make more informed choices on where they pursue their apprenticeship, whilst enabling excellent employers to get recognised and stand out in the competitive world of attracting young talent.
“Next Gen Makers is proud to support the Leeds Manufacturing Festival and its efforts to inspire the next generation towards careers in engineering and manufacturing in Leeds. Engineering and manufacturing are vital to the UK economy, society and creating the technologies that we all rely upon, so it is essential that we raise awareness of the fantastic careers available within the sector whilst creating a platform for employers to showcase their opportunities..”
