We are pleased to announce 3 new Masterclasses taking place over the next couple months:
This Masterclass is designed to give an overview of the current energy distribution systems focusing on the gas and electrical grid. The National Grid will be discussed with regards to its conception, development to date, current reinforcement work and potential conversion to a smart grid in the future. Day-to-day control and maintenance issues will be learnt through practical activities at the National Grid training centre. The vast scope of work planned in the redesign of the grid will be considered with regard to the workforce skills needed to implement.
The University of Chester has key expertise in nanotechnology relevant to food. Relevance to industry will be stressed throughout the workshop and industry experts will be at the event to speak of current practice in industry. Rapid testing technologies provide an opportunity for cheap, simple, on-site testing in the workplace by staff with limited technical expertise.
This masterclass will highlight both new and existing technologies in welding and joining techniques. The skills shortage in this field is reportedly one of the biggest facing UK engineering companies and it is limiting growth. Industries seriously in need of these skills include manufacturing, communications and offshore energy, including oil & gas and renewable power. Colleges therefore have the opportunity to meet direct employer need and attract more engineering students by introducing welding technologies into their curriculum.
To book a place on any of these Masterclasses, or to find out more, contact Robyn Burriss at NEF on 020 8786 3677 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Early booking is recommended as spaces fill up fast!
