Industry 4.0 Partners

Academic qualifications are delivered at UCLan, Preston.

The IN4.0 ACCESS accelerator 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 of its 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 programme. 

Funded by the Apprenticeship Levy

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, 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.
