Some of our lower sixth form students had the opportunity to visit Toyota's car manufacturing plant located in our very own Derbyshire (Burnaston to be precise). Established in December 1989, the vehicle manufacturing plant currently makes the Toyota Avensis (1997–present), Toyota Auris (2006–present) and Toyota Auris Hybrid (2010–present). The students were provided with some insight into the future direction of engineering at Toyota. They were then given a tour of the plant followed by a very useful discussion on how they can direct their future careers. #manufactureyourfuture
