News: Record numbers at Brinsworth Academy of Engineering


Record numbers of young apprentices are being trained for skilled engineering jobs at Brinsworth Academy of Engineering in Rotherham, assisting in generating sustainable employment with some of the largest employers in the region.

The Tembleborough centre has generated 150 vacancies so far for young people in 2012 and has over 280 learners currently on a three year long training programme to become skilled engineers.

Brinsworth Training rebranded to Brinsworth Academy of Engineering in January 2012 and is now wholly owned by Managing Director Mick Crossley. His fellow director Paul Reeves joined the organisation in April 2010.

The team works closely with key employers in the region such as Firth Rixson, AESSEAL, Newburgh Engineering, Premier Foods, Kraft Foods and many others.

Its training premises boast an extensively equipped machine shop along with specialist equipment for Mechanical Engineering, Electrical, Electronics, PLC, Instrumentation & Control, CAD CAM and Rapid Prototyping.

Cllr. Gerald Smith, the cabinet member for Regeneration and Development at Rotherham Council recently toured the site. He said: "Some of the largest employers have seen significant improvements in the quality of the apprentices that have been entering the industry and a major factor in all of that has to be aligned to Brinsworth Academy of Engineering.

"We are seeing some of our major engineering companies such as Newburgh Engineering, AESSEAL, MTL Group and Darron SBO, benefit from what is a forward thinking and engaging organisation that is passionate about developing youth employment within such an important industry sector."

Paul Reeves, business development director at Brinsworth Academy of Engineering, added: "We have worked hard to develop a training company that meets the needs of industry; we have done that by including employers in some of our major decision making processes and curriculum development. We are delighted that Cllr Smith has seen first-hand the important part we are playing in the economy."
