Midlands based general and precision engineering company Glassworks Hounsell and Chartered Accountants and Business Advisors E R Grove & Co. have teamed up to launch a “My Engineering” work placement scheme.
In a bid to encourage college learners aiming for a career in engineering by matching them with suitable manufacturing companies within the region, the project is currently still seeking manufacturers and colleges wishing to be part of the new scheme.
“My Engineering” will see 12 college learners working for 12 different manufacturing companies within the Back Country throughout their academic year. In order to acquire a wide range of skills and experience different manufacturing backgrounds, each student will get the chance to spend time with at least two of the 12 participating companies. Every learner will be required to attend one of the company’s premises for 1-2 days a week and full time during college holidays, plus, upon completion, students may have a chance of doing a full-time apprenticeship with their chosen firm.Read more…
