Today, a group of 15 Year 7 learners went to Nissan for a ‘Discovering Engineering’ event. The event was held in conjunction with the Government’s ‘See Inside Manufacturing’ programme to inspire young people to consider careers in advanced manufacturing and engineering, and to challenge negative perceptions about the UK’s manufacturing industry. Engineering plays a major part in every aspect of our lives, and this event demonstrated its importance to Nissan. The event included a chance to see all models made at the Sunderland plant, but in particular the 100% electric Nissan LEAF. Learners were also given a tour of the production line so they could see the cars being assembled. The group really enjoyed the visit and were a credit to Kepier!
