Make UK Apprentice Open Day 25 January, 2020

Location: Birmingham Technology Hub
Apprenticeships are a great route for those looking for an alternative to university and prefer a different approach to learning. However, there are a number of misconceptions surrounding apprenticeships, which can often be a barrier to those considering them.
There are so many myths surrounding apprenticeships and fears that securing a well-regarded placement is difficult, when, in reality, the manufacturing and engineering sector is looking for bright, talented, enthusiastic people to join apprenticeship programmes right now.
We hope that our open day, on January 25th at the Make UK Technology Hub in Aston, will help showcase alternative routes and opportunities available through apprenticeships, to kick start new opportunities for young people as they start the new year.
During the open day you’ll gain advice and get the opportunity to discuss future career prospects with recruiting employers including; Ibstock, JLR, Severn Trent, Sulzer, AE Aerospace, Runflat International Ishida and more, talk to current apprentices about their experiences, tour the state-of-the-art facilities and hear from Make UK’s apprenticeship team about what apprentices are really all about, and get top tips on your application.
Report Launch “Accelerating decarbonisation: a complementary approach using alternative fuels” 28 January, 2020

Category: Organisation Event
Location: Institution of Mechanical Engineers, 1 Birdcage Walk SW1H 9JJ
Decarbonising road transport is increasingly urgent and important in the race to address climate change as around 25% of UK greenhouse gas emissions come from this sector. The report argues that alternative and synthetic fuels offer an immediate opportunity to accelerate decarbonisation by employing existing technologies in a complementary approach to the long-term transition to fully electric vehicles.
There will be a panel discussion to discuss the issues raised by the report and its recommendations. The discussion will feature:
Paul Jones, the report’s co-author and Chair of the Institution’s Automobile Division
Steve Sapsford, co-author and Chair of the Institution’s Powertrain Systems and Fuels Group
Dr Jenifer Baxter, Chief Engineer at the Institution
