Developing Britain’s manufacturing talent
Britain is renowned for its manufacturing expertise. The sector accounts for 10 per cent of UK GDP, for 44 per cent of all UK exports and directly creates 2.7 million jobs.
Yet there is a lack of qualified workers. The shortfall could reach 220,000 by 2020 so it is vital to train new talent.
We are helping to close this skills gap through our investment in the Lloyds Bank Advanced Manufacturing Training Centre (AMTC) in Coventry.
