Our Six Sigma Green Belt programme is a practical, hands-on course focused on eliminating waste and increasing efficiency across the whole operation and along the supply chain.
Qualified Six Sigma Green Belt practitioners have the skills and expertise to apply sophisticated improvement tools, change behaviours and transform business performance. Practitioners typically generate cost savings of £25,000 – £250,000 through the Six Sigma projects they implement.
The programme is delivered by experienced Six Sigma Black Belt practitioners who also offer mentoring, support, and advice.

Who is the course designed for?
Managers and team leaders in the following roles:
- Continuous Improvement
Attendees should have a basic knowledge of lean tools and techniques and experience within a manufacturing environment
How does it work?
The programme is delivered through practical group and individual exercises, worked examples and seminar type case discussions. The ‘Train-Learn-Apply-Share’ cycle is used to maximise student understanding and value delivered back into the business. This methodology can increase the financial return fourfold when compared to a traditional classroom-based course.
To get the most benefit from the programme, candidates should be fully prepared before each session, contribute to discussions and be ready to share their own experiences. To achieve Green Belt certification students must also complete an in-company project and submit written reports for assessment, detailing the quantified benefits they have delivered – all of which are signed off by their sponsoring manager.
