Education and Development

As a Trade Association, it is vital that the MTA represents the voice of its members within current affairs.  In particular, the MTA places importance on addressing the current skills gap within the industry, working to ensure the longevity of British engineering-based manufacturing.

The MTA has responded to recent Government consultations on the Apprenticeship Levy, scheduled for launch in April 2017. 

Previously, the MTA has lobbied Government regarding the inclusion and promotion of Design and Technology (D&T) subjects at GCSE level, a subject which has been overlooked during recent education reforms.
