DAY 2022

Opening doors for future makers

7 July 2022


On 7 July 2022 Manufacturers will pledge to throw open their doors in a 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, aiming to 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 our sector,  the range of highly skilled jobs on offer and the amazing opportunities for reskilling and career development within manufacturing in the UK.


Manufacturers can participate in any number of ways, at any time throughout the day, from a single tour to a full programme of events. To help, Make UK can assist with every step of the journey. The resources section of this website hosts all of the information a manufacturing business will need, from tips on how to set up an event, to ideas for the day.


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

Help to grow the awareness of manufacturing and the fantastic careers which can be made for the next generation.
