Q8Oils is partnering with West Anglia Training Association (WATA), one of the UK’s leading training providers, to support its apprenticeship programmes as part of its commitment to help develop the next generation of skilled engineers.
It is donating high-quality oils for the machinery used in training courses and also providing equipment such as mixing systems. Q8Oils is also supporting the curriculum by sharing its knowledge on safe working practices through presentations to tutors and handouts for the students.
Martin Crabtree, an industrial applications specialist at Q8Oils, commented: “I heard about WATA through a longstanding Q8Oils client whose apprentices train there and it seemed a natural opportunity to offer our support. We bring our expertise on lubrication matters, metalworking fluids and technical advice to ensure safe working practices within the workplace are understood. We are delighted to have the opportunity to share this with students at WATA.”
Terri Jones, CEO at WATA, added: “The support we receive from Q8Oils is invaluable, not just in financial terms but in being able to draw on their knowledge of lubricants and the latest working practices. It’s also very beneficial for our learners to meet major players in the industry at an early stage of their career.”
Based in Huntingdon, WATA offers an extensive portfolio of courses, seminars and apprenticeships programmes. Courses range from technical and management skills to environmental and health & safety programmes and can be tailored to meet the changing needs of employers.
