The MTI is the result of a unique collaboration led by North Warwickshire and South Leicestershire College, and its partners, HORIBA MIRA, Coventry University, the University of Leicester, and Loughborough University. Built with £9.5m investment from the UK Government’s Local Growth Fund via the Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership Limited, the MTI is a specialist facility designed specifically to train the next generation of engineers in the latest automotive technology.
We are helping to create specialist skills in some of the new emerging technology areas including electrification and driverless cars, ensuring a sustainable supply of future technical specialists and engineers.
Our vision is to be a global centre of excellence where industry leaders, engineers, technicians and other business professionals working, or aspiring to work, in the automotive sector come to develop essential skills that are key to fuelling their career ambitions and their employer’s business success.
The MTI is a purpose-built centre designed to deliver automotive training, offering accredited programmes from Level 2 to Level 8 (Doctorate level) as well as a range of bespoke training courses and CPD opportunities. Developing talented apprentices right through to chartered engineers, the MTI provides access to a unique skills escalator, enabling progress to higher and degree level apprenticeships and beyond.
The MTI offers flexible delivery designed to meet the needs of individuals and businesses, enabling students to progress through the levels and to move seamlessly between training partners.
The MTI is industry-led and works closely with industry to ensure that the training and qualifications specifically address its needs. MTI students have the advantage of accessing automotive training whether they are starting at ground level or need higher level qualifications.
