West Suffolk College: 3rd October 2018

Previous Meetings

October 3rd 2018 marked the launch of the West Suffolk Manufacturing Group, NAAME’s first group to be formed in Suffolk.

This session was facilitated by West Suffolk College in Bury St Edmunds and thus prompted the group to discuss the topic of skills. This 3-hour group allowed businesses, public bodies and academics to discuss how they can create a greater local apprenticeship system and how we as a region can create more work experience opportunities for students,

Also explored was an introductory session of Lean Thinking, showing businesses the training being offered by Hethel Innovation and how it can increase productivity. This short snapshot of Lean introduced attendees to some key tools of how to increase value whilst reducing waste; the core components of Lean.
