Warrington & Vale Royal College has been running skills competitions this week as part of its celebrations of National Apprenticeship Week 2020.
The event gives students the opportunity to engage employers and industry manufacturers.
Dave Love, Warrington & Vale Royal College’s Curriculum Manager for Electrical Installation, said: “It’s instrumental to a young person’s development that we put them in front of people from the industry. All the students had talks and demonstrations from Ansell Lighting, Gewiss, Super Rod, Klein Tools and many more.”
The competition was supported by Doncaster Cables, who supplied the cable for the competition, and Ideal Electrical, who provided prizes and support the college throughout the year.
Dave Love, Warrington & Vale Royal College’s Curriculum Manager for Electrical Installation, said: “I’d like to thank all the suppliers, manufacturers and lecturers for all their hard work in making this day a day the students will remember forever.”
Warrington & Vale Royal College and Ansell Lighting inspire the next generation of electricians
Ansell Lighting recently joined forces with Warrington & Vale Royal College to inspire the next generation of electricians on the benefits of smart lighting.
A range of Ansell OCTO products were donated to students to aide their knowledge and understanding of smart lighting. As well as improving their knowledge of lighting technology, Ansell’s OCTO equipment gives the students valuable hands-on experience in installing and setting up smart lighting.
Dave Love, the college’s Curriculum Manager for Electrical Installation, said: “Warrington & Vale Royal College staff had such an amazing time at Ansell Lighting for our industry updating. Our new college friends have donated a huge amount of next-level smart lighting technology for our students to use.”
Ansell’s Marketing Manager, Rachel Morris, said: “We have loved working with Warrington & Vale Royal College and are really pleased with how well our smart lighting products have been received by the staff and students.”
