Improving Operational Performance Apprenticeship: Employer Guide

Why take on an Improving Operational Performance Apprentice?

Many companies are introducing lean manufacturing and continuous improvement techniques in order to improve productivity and competitiveness. It is essential that these techniques be employed in the face of stiff international competition from places such as China and the Pacific rim who can undercut manufacturing costs in the UK due to lower wage rates. It is no coincidence that the highest performing companies in the UK are those that train their employees in the latest business improvement techniques.

This framework aims to help you keep up with change and remain competitive by training staff to operate efficiently and effectively.
