Allsops give engineering students a helping hand
Allsops have worked in partnership with Kirklees College for over three years, educating and training Apprentices. The students have created two racing buggies from scratch as part of the BTEC Extended Diploma in Manufacturing. The group were invited by Allsops to see their creations put through the powder coating and painting process.
Engineering learning assessment officer from Kirklees Collge, Alister Bush, organised the visit. He said, â€œThe Allsops partnership is just one of many the college is fostering with local companies. Itâ€™s important to us because it gives the students a real glimpse into the industry. It can lead to work experience and gives the college a whole host of support, from materials to technical assistance."
