New Industry Linked Branch Meetings

Published Thursday 06 November 2014

During November and December we are running a new type of Branch meeting with support and input from the industry partners who were the first to get involved in the Skills Gap Programme; Renishaw plc & Alucast.  The Branch meetings will be practical and accompany the teaching resources now available at www.skillsgapprogramme.org.uk.  Each session will provide the opportunity to be guided through the key elements of the teaching material by both the D&T Association and the industry partner.  The Branch meetings are free but will be asking attendees to complete an evaluation form to help guide how we develop similar sessions with industry partners for D&T teachers into the future.  The Branch meeting, relating to the ‘programmable components’ teaching resources, with Renishaw plc will be held at their premises in Gloucestershire and the meeting with Alucast, focusing on the ‘manufacturing in quantity’ materials,  will be held at ACE Academy in Tipton. Details of the two separate branch meetings can be found on the below links

Alucast - Tipton - 20th November 2014

Renishaw Plc - Gloucestershire - 8th December 2014

We hope you can make it!
