Sensing Instrumentation specialist Baumer has become official partners with Ron Dearing UTC as part of an initiative to train and develop the next generation of engineers.
Commenting on their sponsorship, Jon Sumner, sales director of Baumer, said: “We believe it’s very important to encourage students to get involved in engineering and our sponsorship of Ron Dearing UTC is our way of contributing to the success of this scheme in helping to develop tomorrow’s engineers.”
University Technical Colleges (UTCs) are government funded schools that offer 14-19 year students a great deal more than traditional schools by teaching technical and scientific subjects in a whole new way. Traditional schools and curriculums do not deliver the skills and experience that are going to be vital in helping to ensure that the UK can prosper in the 21st century and UTCs are addressing the skills gap identified by employers.
Ron Dearing UTC has opened a brand new building in Hull City Centre which offers students a totally new and unique way to learn. Backed by Hull University and the region’s leading employers the facility aims to bring these exciting educational opportunities to the Humber region and recognise the important contribution of companies like Baumer.
