Training 2000 Marks National Women in Engineering Day

June 27, 2016

Engineering tutor showing visiting school girls how certain machines work and what they can do

Learners and staff celebrated National Women in Engineering Day, welcoming pupils from an East Lancashire school who experienced a day in the life of an engineering apprentice.

Twelve girls from Sir John Thursby Community College in Burnley visited Training 2000’s Blackburn Engineering Centre, learning more about engineering and the opportunities available for building a career in the sector.

Using CNC machines to create their very own brass ‘rolo’, the visitors then created their very own domino keyrings, learning more about drilling, cutting and filing – before a presentation which promoted the exciting and varied potential careers which are possible within engineering.

This all took place on National Women in Engineering Day 2016, designed to highlight the variety of opportunities in engineering for women and aimed at improving diversity within the sector – organised by the Women’s Engineering Society.
