News: Master Cutler visits Rotherham apprentices


The recently-elected Master Cutler, Pamela Liversidge OBE, has visited Brinsworth Training in Rotherham to meet with apprentices that are undertaking vocational training to become the engineers of the future.

The leading engineering and manufacturing training provider works with the region's top companies including Firth Rixson, AESSEAL and Newburgh Engineering.

The Master Cutler said: "I was impressed by what I saw at Brinsworth. As this region attracts more investment, our requirement for apprentices of the sort I saw today will grow. We must continue to focus providing the right skills for the future and I commend Brinsworth for their very effective approach."

Paul Reeves, business development director at Brinsworth Training said: "We are delighted that The Master was able to allow us time from her hectic schedule and was able to see so many young people that are being given an opportunity to begin their careers in the engineering industry by working through our apprenticeship programme."

During her visit to Templeborough, The Master Cutler, accompanied by Consort Doug Liversidge CBE, met a number of learners who are developing the crucial skills that Pamela herself used during her career as a Chartered Mechanical Engineer, including meeting the latest batch of female learners that have recently taken roles the engineering sector.

During a career of almost forty years in heavy industry, Pamela worked in manufacturing, including four years creating her own business to manufacture specialist metal powders by atomisation, in addition to five years as a senior executive in the electricity industry during its privatisation. In the 1999 New Year's Honours List, she was awarded the OBE for her services to the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.

The Cutlers' Company was established by a parliamentary Act of Incorporation in 1624 and for almost four hundred years has sought to maintain the standards and quality of Sheffield manufactured cutlery and steel products and to promote the name of Sheffield.

Paul added: "We fully support the work of The Cutlers Company and embrace their commitment to apprenticeships, we have seen a significant rise in not only the amount of young people that want to enter the sector of engineering but also a healthy appetite from employers who want to create real job opportunities for apprentices."
