GTA England Members’ Day at Aston UTC in Birmingham was a resounding success …

45 people attended the event, held at the Aston University Engineering Academy so that we could all see – and try out – the Formula One in Schools track for real.

Andrew Denford’s presentation gave us a real insight into what F1 in schools could do for GTAs and for young engineers in their areas. Other more ‘down to earth’ but equally important highlights, including updates on capital funding for GTAs, Trailblazer progress from the Chairs of the groups, and input on quality and inspection, made this an event not to be missed. Powerpoint slides for those who missed it, and for those who want to follow up some of the information, can be found in the Conference Materials folder in the Members Resources section.These include up to the minute state of play from the Automotive and Aerospace groups; current SFA thoughts on the structure of funding under the new Apprenticeship arrangements.
