Lincoln College hosted electrical engineering firms from across the County for master class training, student competitions and an Electrical Contractors Association (ECA) presentation.
The evening was designed to build on existing industry relationships, discuss ways for the college to further develop its training and to raise awareness of the ECA.
Lincoln College Learning and Skills Lead for Electrical and Electronics, Andrew Bellas, organised the event.
“This was a fantastic opportunity to build on and develop our relationships with firms in the industry,” he said.
“We had a great mix of large and small companies, along with a number of self-employed electricians. It was also great to see some former students doing so well for themselves.
“The evening gave our students the chance to show off their skills and chat to local employers about the next steps in their careers.”
ECA East Midlands Regional Manager Carol Baker-Wightman said: “Working with colleges is part of our drive to raise standards in the industry and this evening was a great opportunity to spread the word on how the ECA can support electrical contractors.”
Owner of Pro Electrical Kieran Trollope said: “This event is an ideal opportunity to receive free continuous professional development, meet electrical equipment manufacturers and receive information on apprenticeships offered by the College.”
Electrical Installations student John Major said: “It has been great meeting employers and making a positive impression, I’m hoping to gain an apprenticeship so it’s been helful to be able to talk to the people who can make that happen for me.”
