Free manufacturing and engineering masterclasses

Published on 21/07/2020 by DTHACK

Manufacturing and engineering businesses can take advantage of free online masterclasses to help them bounce back from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Workshops are available across a wide range of subjects including social media and marketing with more in the pipeline focused on lean manufacturing, project management, quality management, root cause analysis and risk assessment.

Masterclasses are being hosted by the award-winning Blackpool and The Fylde College supporting the success of small to medium sized businesses.

The EnginE project is funded by the European Social Fund and brings together additional expertise from Lancaster University Management School, Blackburn College and Northern Automotive Alliance.

Laura May, Business Engagement Executive at Blackpool and The Fylde College, said companies can access the masterclasses as many times as they like.

“We are delighted to be able to offer these free masterclasses to SMEs across Lancashire operating in the advanced engineering and manufacturing sectors.

“The manufacturing sector can include anything from kitchens to industrial chimneys, food or re-manufacturing while advanced engineering can include companies working in the nuclear sector, packaging or consultancy.

“Hopefully it will give companies a taste of the wide range of opportunities to upskill their workforce, deliver innovation and grow and retain staff.”

The masterclasses are currently delivered online and last about three hours each.
