The AMRC Training Centre will be based in a new 5,500 sq m building on a site next to the Advanced Manufacturing Park at Catcliffe, Rotherham. It is scheduled to open in autumn 2013.

The Training Centre will provide the practical and academic skills that manufacturing companies need to compete globally, from apprenticeship through to doctorate and MBA level, plus continuing professional development.

The centre will link with both Sheffield universities for higher-level education and with the new Sheffield University Technical College (UTC), providing a full progression in engineering training for the first time in the region.

The AMRC is now working with manufacturers and training providers to make sure that our training will meet the needs of employers, and give young people the skills they need for a rewarding career in some of the world's most innovative industries.
