We had a great day at The Commercial Vehicle Show at the NEC Birmingham with Skillnet welcoming pupils from St Mary’s Academy and apprentices from the Henry Ford Academy to the busy Ford UK stand.
Pupils and apprentices were given a guided tour of the stand and presentations on the benefits of the Ford Masters Apprenticeship Programme (FMAP) before taking a look around the rest of the show.
We had a great day at the Henry Ford Academy with Sue Husband, Director of the National Apprenticeship Service at the Skills Funding Agency (SFA), and our client Skillnet.
The visit was party of our ongoing stakeholder engagement programme. Sue was given a tour of Ford’s fantastic training centre and took part in demos of some typical automotive tasks.
We love helping Skillnet spread the word about the benefits of apprenticeships.
Take a look at why Skillnet’s programme for Ford is in the running for a National Apprenticeship Service Award.
