Brightwell Dispensers Ltd. supports UTC@harbourside taster events
Event: Taster sessions with UTC@harbourside
2 February 2015
Brightwell Dispensers Ltd. were pleased to host two taster events in conjunction with UTC@harbourside. The events are part of a series organised by UTC@harbourside to give potential pupils interested in engineering, computing and science a chance to learn about the University Technical College and discover how important these subjects are in a wide range of different jobs and industries.
Prospective students and parents were invited on a tour of Brightwell Dispensers’ manufacturing facilities at Euro Business Park, Newhaven. The Brightwell team guided attendees through the production, engineering and quality assurance suites where they were given an in-depth look at Brightwell’s operations and expertise. Later, a session was held in their on-site technical training room with potential employers and the Principal Designate of UTC@harbourside, Jonathan Clarke.
Brightwell Group Marketing Manager, Suzanne Gardent, comments:
“As Newhaven’s largest employer, we are fully invested in the community. We consider people our most important asset and place an emphasis on training and education to help them reach their full professional potential. UTC is a great boost to the local economy and will play a vital role in equipping young people with the relevant skills and experience needed to access career opportunities within the industry”.
