Renishaw apprentice heads overseas

Renishaw apprentice Ryan Harris recently participated in a two-week Erasmus programme in Germany, funded by the EU.

The programme gives Welsh college students first-hand experience of engineering in another country and broadens their knowledge of the industry by showing them different approaches. As part of the Erasmus programme, four students from Coleg Y Cymoedd were selected for work experience at Stadler Anglenbau GmbH, including an all-expenses paid trip to the company’s facility in Altshausen, Baden-Württemberg. Stadler Anglenbau designs and manufactures waste sorting plants and components. Says Harris. “The scheme enabled me to learn from and work with peers who have come through a different education system. I’m really glad that I got to take part in the programme because it opened my eyes to a new industry, a new country and a new approach.”
