Lean Improvement Technician Level 3 Apprenticeship
The LEAN IMPROVEMENT TECHNICIAN STANDARD programmes were created by industry for industry as a means to combat the growing productivity issues the UK economy is facing.
During the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy in April 2017 a number of large organisations throughout the UK came together to create a Lean programme they felt would develop the skills that their staff needed to improve efficiency and create long term culture change allowing for improved productivity and competitiveness. The outcome of this collaborative effort is the LEAN IMPROVEMENT TECHNICIAN STANDARD, a Lean Programme relevant to all staff across industry.
