UTC Trip: Toyota Manufacturing UK

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

UTC Trip: MACH 2018

In April, we took our Year 10 students on a visit to the 2018 MACH event at Birmingham’s NEC. This huge space was packed full of exhibitors from a wide range of companies across the engineering manufacturing sector. We were fortunate enough to receive demonstrations from leading companies such as Fanuc and Intermac, who showed our students their latest innovative technologies in action. Our students, the leading engineers of the future, had a fantastic experience. They learnt lots, took advantage of opportunities to gets hands-on with some cutting-edge pieces of kit, and came home with mountains of goodies!
