Taking advantages of the industry-standard facilities at the College’s Industry Excellence Academy for Construction and Engineering, the students took part in live demonstrations and masterclasses, as well as a digital learning zone with a digger simulator. 

They also had the chance to receive trade discount cards and enter prize draws.

Ayub Moosa, The Manchester College’s Assistant Principal for Automotive, Construction, Engineering and Logistics, said: “I’d like to thank all the employers who attended for making this trade fair such a fantastic event.

Our students were able to explore different career opportunities and make invaluable contacts, which will help them on their journey into industry.
