Ford & Slater team up with Imperial apprentices at the World Skills Show 2018

12-12-2018, Ford & Slater Leicester


Last month the Ford & Slater Apprenticeships Panel teamed up with DAF dealer group, Imperial Commercials and DAF Trucks UK to host a stand at the World Skills Show.

Held at the NEC in Birmingham, the World Skills Show is the UK’s largest annual apprenticeships and careers event. It runs alongside the prestigious World Skills UK competition, in which our own Mike Buck competed in the earlier rounds, and is attended by no less than 70,000 visitors each year.   

Over the course of the three-day event Ford & Slater Apprentice Panel members, Ryan, Dan, Owen and Aaron helped run the stand, speaking with students and school leavers and giving them the opportunity to have a go at some simple HGV technician tasks for themselves.

Our apprentices were kept very busy, with thousands flocking to try out some of the tasks, speak to the team and even have a look in and around the impressive 90th anniversary DAF show truck. It was a fantastic event and a pleasure to work alongside Imperial and their apprentices; we look forward to seeing them again next year!
