    Apr 2019 - Jaguar Castle Bromwich Trip

    Staff from our Engineering department recently accompanied 40 students to Castle Bromwich on a trip which was built around experiencing (as part of their KS3 vocational learning) how 'lean manufacturing' process is applied within a world leading manufacture in the auto industry. The trip was split into two sessions. One session involved applying 'lean manufacturing' process around a Lego kit with students split into teams competing against each other. In the same session students also experienced Virtual Reality robotic programming.

    This was a brilliant opportunity because the second session was a tour around the factory in order to experience the build of the 2 seater Jaguar F-Type sportscar (probably the most beautiful looking sportscar in production today) from flat panel to the finished item.
