Manufacturing Improvement Programs & Digital Accelerator Courses

IN4.0 Access

Industry 4.0 Access Training Courses

Master Industry 4.0

A ground-breaking training accelerator course designed through IN4.0 Group joint venture with the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) and in collaboration with BAE Systems.

Our manufacturing improvement programmes up-skill manufacturing staff and industry leaders to drive digital transformation through disruptive leadership coaching and disruptive innovation demonstration and application.

IN4.0 access qualifications are uniquely designed to integrate into degree and postgraduate apprenticeships with awards of BSc and MSc. Therefore the digital accelerator course can be funded by the Apprenticeship Levy.

Delegates will scope industry 4.0 commercial innovation projects over 3 months during IN4.0 access, leading to prototyping and implementation of innovative business processes during the degree programme.

Academic qualifications are delivered at UCLan, Preston.

Companies with a wage bill of over £3m have a levy pot to spend and it can be used to sponsor an existing employee through IN4.0 ACCESS Manufacturing Improvement Programs, including the PG DIP and MSc elements.

If your company has a wage bill of under £3m, you’ll only need to pay 5% (£1350) of the programme costs.

The IN4.0 ACCESS accelerator course has been designed through IN4.0 Group’s joint venture with the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) and in collaboration with NatWest’s world class Entrepreneur Accelerator.

It’s the first disruptive innovation accelerator training course of it’s kind that gives manufacturing businesses the opportunity to develop their future leaders with the knowledge and skills required to succeed with industry 4.0 technology.

This unique approach will allow you to up-skill technical staff to UCLan Postgraduate Diploma Engineering Competence level and MSc Engineering (Design & Development) level.

During the Postgraduate Diploma, delegates will develop a prototype industry 4.0 commercial innovation project. They will implement their industry 4.0 project during the MSc element of the training programme.
