As well as being the UK’s largest manufacturing technologies showcase, MACH 2018 plays host to an Education & Development (E&D) Zone specifically designed for students aged 11-19. The E&D Zone will bring together advanced engineering companies and educational institutions from across the UK, with the aim of shining a light on the vocational education and training that is imperative to closing the skills gap around the world.
The E&D Zone is once again supported by Sandvik Coromant, a supplier of tools, tooling and solutions to the metalworking industry. Kim Olander, marketing manager, says: “Engineering knowledge and skills are in short supply and we need to secure enough skilled people in the future to meet demand. Sandvik Coromant is proud to partner with the E&D Zone once again. We hope to enthuse young people about the vast range of careers that engineering can offer them.”
