Qualitrain is delighted to be amongst the first UK RoATP-accredited providers to offer the new Lean Manufacturing Operative Standard to existing and new clients. Having delivered thousands of successful Business Improvement Techniques Apprenticeships at Levels 2 and 3, our trainers are looking forward to working with the new standard which provides a direct feed into the existing improvement journey offered by the Improvement Technician, Improvement Practitioner, Improvement Specialist and Improvement Leader standards – all of which Qualitrain already offers.
This new Level 2 Apprenticeship standard provides a 12-14 month programme for apprentices who wish to gain the skills, knowledge and behavioural competences required to work in a modern, efficient, Lean environment.
A lean manufacturing operative will be expected to carry out their work safely and meet the exacting quality standards demanded in a fast-paced and efficient processing environment and develop into a multi-skilled operator through increased process ownership. Typically, a lean manufacturing operative might be required to carry out manufacturing activities on multiple products with different specifications consecutively, but to the same standard.
Candidates will be required to prepare, control, contribute to and complete manufacturing operations, and follow manufacturing processes and standard operating procedures (SOPs) whilst adhering to specific safe working policies & procedures.
