Fri 21 April 2017, 07:30 – 10:00 BST
To help shape and enhance the career advice you provide in schools our Careers Adviser Breakfast will provide you with an update on our new provision.
You will also have the chance to speak with tutors and have a look around our training facilities at our brand new Northern Logistics Academy and STEM Centre.
Northern Logistics Academy
The Northern Logistics Academy has two sites, one in Kirkby and another on Langtree Street in St Helens. The investment has seen the development of brand new standalone distribution and warehouse environment training centres equipped with IT rich data processing centres with logistics software suites and dedicated transport simulators, providing a realistic student training facility.
The two centres offer students a realistic working environment in which they can learn about product movement, from the initial receipt of goods through to storage, picking, packing and despatch as well as forklift truck training and HGV operations. An elevated viewing gallery will allow students to observe a working warehouse in action.
The STEM Centre
The STEM Centre has recently received a substantial £5million investment and was part-funded by the Skills Funding Agency. It now boasts a brand new dining area, internal courtyards, entrance piazza, remodelled workshops and classrooms plus a new library space complete with study suites and PC zones. The STEM Centre will help contribute towards the achievement of St Helens College’s STEM strategy, to foster a culture of innovation, entrepreneurship and enterprise and develop areas including: advanced engineering, robotics and smart utilities.
A complimentary light breakfast will be provided and there is free, on-street parking outside of the Northern Logistics Academy.
