This month we welcomed the Years 11 pupils of Holy Family Catholic High School based in Keighley, West Yorkshire, to the JB Springs factory as part of Bradford Manufacturing Week.
Bradford Manufacturing Week takes place between the 8th and 12th of October. The unique event showcases the district’s manufacturing companies. The idea is to encourage and educate young people around the opportunities that a career in manufacturing can bring, and how rewarding and fulfilling it can be.
Launched by Bradford Chamber of Commerce, Bradford Manufacturing Week aims to bring manufacturers, schools, young people and parents together through tours, work experience, seminars, exhibitions and learning events.
At JB Springs, the Year 11’s had a taster of what a career in spring manufacturing would be like, as well as a brief introduction to Springtelligence.
Springtelligence is a newly developed series of learning experiences to engage and inspire the next generation of spring engineers as well as providing them with knowledge and skills in the areas of spring engineering and manufacturing.
The pupils thoroughly enjoyed their day and were a credit to Holy Family Catholic High School.
