    Industry 4.0 Accelerator Programme (Levy)

    The Industry 4.0 Accelerator Programme has been designed through IN4.0 Group’s joint venture with the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) and in collaboration with NatWest’s world class Entrepreneur Accelerator.

    The programme is supported by BAE Systems, providing access to their technology experts and their Academy for Skills and Knowledge. They also have other sector leading technology companies contributing to the learning aided by SME businesses who have benefited from industry 4.0 adoption.

    IN4.0 ACCESS is the first disruptive innovation accelerator of its kind that gives manufacturing businesses the opportunity to develop their future leaders with the knowledge and skills required to succeed with Industry 4.0 technology funded by the Apprenticeship Levy.

    Their unique approach will allow you to upskill technical staff to post graduate Chartered Engineer level, underpinned with a commercial innovation project supported through access to world class technical facilities, IN4.0 technology post graduates and industry experts.

    If your company has a wage bill of under £3m, you’ll only need to pay 5% (£1350) of the programme costs.  Companies with a wage bill of over £3m have a levy pot to spend and it can be used to sponsor an existing employee through IN4.0 ACCESS.
