Over the past few months our Managing Director “Andy” and our Senior CNC Programmer “Jon” have been liaising with the Isle of College in regards to CNC Engineering/Programming. The Isle of Wight College are in the process of building a £12 million specialist centre for engineering, offering specialised education and training for around 600 students, helping to assure sustainable long term economic success for local people and the island as a whole. CECAMM stands for Centre of Engineering, Composites, Advanced Manufacturing and Marine.
Our input has been from an Employers perception with regards to machinery and Equipment used in Engineering Companies around the Island. The focus being on skills and knowledge, especially hands on/practical skills so that Students are prepared when entering the work place within their chosen field. This also allows Isle of Wight Engineering/manufacturing to employ local people who already have the experience that is required and needed for their businesses.
