“Ford Motor Company is proud to support this academy. Our employees are trying to provide students with an opportunity to work on real engineering projects to give them a taste of what they will be faced with if they choose to enter the industry. Our engineers have been mentoring students, have monitored their progress through regular visits and have been on hand to answer any of their questions and support them whenever they have run into difficulties.
The UK will need more than a million new engineers and technicians over the next five years. As our partnership develops we hope to create more opportunities to encourage new talent into the industry.”
