Days Into Industry

Meeting the needs of a modern family

Days into industry are aimed at Schools and Colleges to help show what the manufacturing and construction industry involves in a 2 to 3 hour visit.

During this time, up to 8 people, can tour our manufacturing plant, get hands on experience and learn about products. This is all undertaken by our industry qualified assessors.

As champion supports of the movement Building our skills – making Fenestration a Career of Choice,, Aspire have made a commitment to help solve the current industry skills gap, a problem that will worsen over the next 10 years without intervention.

A typical day starts with an induction into the Howells Patent Glazing Limited, a local manufacturer and installer for nearly 50 years, premises, followed by a Welcome drink and talk by your host. Full Health and Safety PPE will be provided for your use during the visit.

Ready for our young people to arrive

Through a powerpoint presentation and hands on activities, the attendees learn about rooflighting products and handle the materials. They will be able to recognise problems and be able to identify them.

Identifying components

Hands on experience of rooflight components follows interactive discussions and troubleshooting visuals.

Tutorials in assembly

A factory tour is included to give a real insight into the manufacturing environment. Questions are encouraged.

At the end of the session all attendees will receive a certificate of attendance that can be evidenced as CPD for the visit.
