College unveils new manufacturing line

June 13, 2014

West Cheshire College is hosting an event on Thursday 6 March at its Chester Campus for potential students to find out about exciting career opportunities available in manufacturing and engineering.


During the evening the College will showcase its new operational lean manufacturing line, a unique facility, which was developed with the help of Vauxhall Motors and Unilever.

The manufacturing line is now ready to use as a training facility for College courses and incorporates many features used in manufacturing and production industries, such as mechanical, electrical, pneumatics, programmable logic control (PLCs) and robotics.

The event, which runs from 4-5.30pm, welcomes future students and their parents to have a tour of the Campus, see a demonstration of the full manufacturing line in action and talk to tutors about full-time courses and Apprenticeship opportunities.

Steve Bridge, Head of the Apprenticeship Team at West Cheshire College, said: “It is fantastic to have this new facility in the College.

“The equipment is beneficial for potential students as our facilities reflect real working equipment, therefore giving them the realistic training so they get the right skills to enter the workplace.

“We have a lot of exciting opportunities available for people who want to work in manufacturing and engineering and I would encourage people to come along to find out more about what we offer.”

Vauxhall Motors and Unilever have supported the College with the launch of the manufacturing line by donating components.

West Cheshire College offers a wide range of full-time and part-time courses including applied science, construction and building services, automotive industries and engineering.
