Make UK's National Manufacturing Day

Posted on 29 February 2024

Make UK’s third National Manufacturing Day on Thursday 26th September is the perfect opportunity to get in touch with those young people and help them choose manufacturing for their futures. Showcase what our sector does, make and the great job opportunities provided!

 Following the overwhelming success of our two previous National Manufacturing Days in 2022 and 2023, on Thursday 26th September 2024, Manufacturers throughout the UK will once again be opening their doors. Members of the public will be invited into factories and sites for a behind-the-scenes look at how Manufacturers' facilities work, as part of this UK-wide Open House.

Local communities will have the chance to see the potential careers and jobs on offer within the wonderfully diverse manufacturing sector, as employers engage with all age groups - from school leavers, graduates, people looking to reskill and the local residents. 

For Make UK and Manufacturers, this is an opportunity to showcase the diversity of a truly fascinating sector,  the range of highly skilled jobs on offer and the amazing opportunities for reskilling and career development within manufacturing in the UK.

Manufacturers will participate in a number of ways, from a single tour to a full programme of events, with Make UK assisting every step of the journey.

Together, we will demonstrate the value of a manufacturing apprenticeship as an alternative route post school/college. National Manufacturing Day is a celebration of all of the industry’s sub-sectors including automotive, food and drink, aerospace, defence, chemical and pharma.

Put the date in your diary - we look forward to sharing this great day.
