Training for colleges and sixth forms

We offer advanced manufacturing processes for sixth forms and college students.

Previous projects have included designing and building offshore platform drilling rigs.

The project gives students a greater understanding of the world of engineering, by looking at the fields of structures, hydraulics & pneumatics, robotics, electronics and energy.

Former students have been inspired to go on to degrees in chemical, mechanical or geology engineering or apprenticeships.

Our staff has also given support to individual sixth formers working on A level DT projects (see case studies)

“The pupils have really enjoyed working with Nexus staff on projects both in school and at the Nexus base. The engineering after school club and projects within the school time have given the children a real insight into the breadth of engineering. They have appreciated working with both the excellent resources and the specialist staff.”
