Business Minister Mark Prisk has officially launched this year’s See Inside Manufacturing programme to encourage young people to consider a career in manufacturing.

18 Jun 2012

See Inside Manufacturing involves businesses from across the food & drink, aerospace & defence and automotive sectors. They will open their doors for over 100 events throughout June to show young people, teachers and careers advisers what exciting opportunities exist in 21st century manufacturing.

Thousands of people are expected to visit iconic names such as Coca Cola, Mars, Warburtons, Aston Martin, BMW, Jaguar Land Rover, Airbus and GKN Aerospace over the coming weeks and get hands on with the latest designs and technologies that make Britain one of the world’s leading manufacturing nations.

The Business Minister visited Coca Cola Enterprises in Edmonton, London where he joined pupils from Uxbridge College to see for himself how the famous drink is made.

Mr Prisk said:

“This year See Inside Manufacturing is bigger and better following the success of its pilot last year in the automotive sector - when over 1000 people visited 100 events across the country to learn more about the exciting opportunities available in manufacturing.
