Yesterday I was lucky enough to accompany 14 pupils from LPA to visit Honda UK.
We were introduced to the Honda brand and had an insight into the Apprenticeship opportunities on offer at the Swindon facility.
In addition to the above we were afforded the opportunity to tour the ‘car making facility’ and watch the whole production process. It was what can only be described as a ‘real eye-opener’ as to the scale of the facility and also the way in which manpower, robotics and technology are used to produce their cars.
Honda are keen to develop talent from around the local area and as such are now offering Engineering based Apprenticeships with a February deadline for applications. They have also introduced ‘business apprenticeships’ and these will be released later in the year. (further info to follow)

Overall a great insight into one of the biggest employers in our region.
