To help manufacturers gain the skills they need to compete globally, the Manufacturing Management Development Programme has been developed by the Manufacturing Institute.

Quality assured by the University of Manchester, the programme comprises of three personal effectiveness modules – ‘Leadership and managing change’, ‘Developing others’ and ‘Developing yourself’ from the Professional Diploma in Manufacturing.

‘The institute’s new Manufacturing Management Development Programme is aimed at anyone with several years manufacturing experience, but who may not necessarily have any existing formal qualifications and who want to simply up their game as efficiently and expertly as possible,’ said Neil Smith, head of education and training at the Manufacturing Institute.

The three self-contained modules in the programme require four study days each, approximately 25 hours of home study and a 2,000-2,500 word assignment for each module.

The modules make use of practical example and real-life case studies, with help available at all times from experienced and qualified mentors.

Subjects covered in the programme include managing change, creativity, innovation and problem solving, motivation, team working, communication and leadership.

The programme commences on 2 February 2011.

Scholarship grants for 50 per cent of the programme fee are available for SMEs and selected candidates from large manufacturing organisations.
