Representatives from the University of Sheffield’s Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre Training Centre and Rotherham College, who work with AESSEAL to deliver training, will give information about the mechanical engineering apprenticeship scheme.

Engineering director Stephen Shaw, said: “Mechanical engineering offers a wide range of career options and we aim to let local students get a real glimpse the fantastic professional life an apprenticeship offers.

“We’re looking forward to sharing our knowledge and enthusiasm with students across the two days – we’re confident that some of them will be joining us as apprentices and colleagues as part of our 2020 intake next summer.”​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
