Training 2000 learners gained an insight into how a large engineering firm operates and got to see some of their state-of-the-art kit in action, as Haimer, whose UK base is in East Lancashire, brought their ‘demo van’ to the training providers £1.2m Advanced Manufacturing & Automation Centre (AMAC).
Dozens of learners were able to ask questions and view demonstrations – alongside taking a look at the pioneering equipment in place at the AMAC, which was officially opened in September, and apprentices also had the opportunity to watch a World Skills finals competitor producing components ahead of the national competition.
The ‘engineers of the future’ had a great morning, gaining an in depth look at a range of engineering tools and techniques that may not be part of their everyday work environment – and for those who work in this area of engineering currently, it was a great way to reinforce the development of their skills and build their confidence and career options.
