As well as the diverse range of workshops in the Antalis Academy, Antalis are delighted to promote training at the UK’s foremost centre of education for Printing technology.

 

Leicester College offer Apprenticeships in Digital Printing pathways at level 2 and level 3. These courses are delivered through on and off the job training. Off the job training can be delivered on-site or in college, in their very own production printing department. Participants will be taught the necessary theory surrounding print and the Digital processes ranging from the core principles, right through to colour management and maintenance techniques. Different topics are selected dependant on the nature of the job role, such as print finishing to pre-press operations. During this course the participants are allocated their own dedicated Trainer Assessor to guide them through their NVQ. All of the Assessors are from the printing industry, with a wealth of experience spanning over 30 years.

 

At each level, the course lasts around 18-24 months. At level 2 the participant is given a good overview of the print industry and related skills. At level 3, this focuses more towards a high level of competency and starts to develop team leading and supervisory skills. Support is offered to the participant and the organisation throughout the journey. This is managed via regular reviews to discuss progress and to look at setting milestones and stretching targets to coincide with your business objectives.
