Work Inspiration at Nelson & Colne College

Our commitment to raise the profile of the road transport industry and the career opportunities available at Fagan & Whalley continued on the 7th February, when the Training and HR team exhibited at the Nelson & Colne College Work Inspiration Day.

This is an annual event held for local schools, Year 9 students (13 & 14 year olds), that allows the children to engage with local employers, taking part in practical demonstrations and learning more about College life, while hopefully get them thinking about their future. Collaborating with Transport Training Academy, based at Network 65 Business Park, the team challenged students with a transport quiz and a competition to create a design for a vehicle’s curtains.

Over a thousand students from six local schools attended the event where they were invited to take part in similar work-related activities, by a number of local employers including ACDC Lighting, BAE Systems, Burnley FC in the community, Flexipol, McDonalds, Warburtons and Silent Night Beds.
