A group of Year 10 pupils visited InComm Training to experience a day in the life of an apprentice. They started with a tour of the facilities and learnt all about the apprenticeship pathway into engineering careers. They then split into competing teams, taking part in a practical workshop. Pupils designed, built and tested their own mechanical devices, examining the use of fluid power to lift and move objects. The project not only allowed pupils to experience what it might be like to work as a future engineer, but it also gave them the opportunity to develop key employability skills of teamwork, communication and problem solving. The winning teams’ mechanical arm is pictured.
