Ideal Industries supports electrical skills training
Ideal Industries, the global specialist in electrical accessories, tools and testing equipment, has developed a partnership with Warrington & Vale Royal College as part of a planned outreach programme with the further education sector across the UK.
Ideal Industries has donated a large supply of its In-Sure Push-In and Lever Wire Connectors to Warrington & Vale Royal College. The connectors will enable students to train and take exams with this simple-to-use, faster and more consistent alternative to connector strips. The College will also benefit from a number of safe isolation kits and testing equipment donated by Ideal Industries.
Product donations are just part of Ideal Industries’ college outreach programme, however; the company’s team will also provide a series or talks and demonstrations for students and engagement with both students and staff will feed into the company’s new product development programme.
Brett Smyth, Ideal Industries’ general manager for the UK and Europe explains: “We’re keen to work with young electricians and their teachers to close the gap between education and the workplace and ensure we help them meet the challenges of the profession both now and in the future.”
As part of the partnership, Warrington & Vale Royal College’s electrical teaching team will provide technical consultancy to Ideal Industries and the partners will work together on a proposed skills competition.
