On Wed 10th May the college was visited by the engineering roadshow run by NTL apprenticeships from Brimington. The company is a long standing supporter of the college and provides many memorable events that Springwell students have taken part in. The previous week, Keith Dixon had visited Springwell and spoken to a group of budding engineers about the apprenticeship route – the benefits, what it can lead to and the qualities needed to complete one successfully. Keith then returned the following week with his ‘virtual welding’ kit. Students were invited to have a go and see if they had what it took to keep a steady hand and perform a weld properly! It was well received by students from different year groups and again, Keith was on hand to give practical advice, both about welding skills and the opportunities that an apprenticeship can provide.
