A group of students from West Walsall E-Act Academy visited Precision Colour Printing for a tour of their three sites as part of their career development; to find out what goes on behind the scenes in the world of print.
David Lightfoot and Students
John Hulme – Design & Technology teacher at the Academy could clearly identify with the experience having worked for PCP as engineer 10 years ago.
“Printing is a traditional industry but it is still very much at the forefront of technology. As part of the students’ course we felt a visit to the factory would be an ideal opportunity to find out what goes on into the process of producing a magazine that we see displayed in newsagents throughout the country.”
“Our aim is to visit a number of different businesses that the younger generation are not familiar with to explore different career possibilities.”
“At PCP we try to get involved with local schools, colleges and universities to help support their career development programme.” We have conducted a number of factory tours and are delighted to talk with any student who is thinking about a career in print.
