ENGIE Fabricom sponsor Healing School for Formula 24 event

By | awards | No Comments

ENGIE Fabricom is proud to announce that they will be sponsoring Healing School in this weekends Formula 24 race in Hull.

The sponsorship agreement will help allow Healing School fund for improvements on their car to ensure that it is competitive and built to a high standard.

Local races are to be held in Hull as part of the City of Culture celebrations at the KCOM Stadium in Hull on Sunday 16th July 2017. The first race will commence at 11:45am.

Formula 24 gives pupils the opportunity to design, build and race an electric car. Pupils from Healing School have been involved in all aspects from building the car to marketing the project and attracting sponsors.

The nationwide project is run by Greenpower Education Trust, whose objective is to advance education in the subjects of sustainable engineering and technology to young people.

Andrew Mitchell, Strategic Development Director for ENGIE Fabricom, commented: “ We are delighted to sponsor Healing School with the Greenpower Formula 24 race. The pupils have worked very hard throughout the project and it is great to see young people getting involved with engineering at such an early stage in their lives, as well as being able to utilise the facilities at CATCH to build the cars.

“We would like to commend all of the pupils involved within the project as well as the teachers that have helped guide them throughout. We would like to wish everyone at Healing School all the best for the race on Sunday”.

Sam Horner, Assistant Principal at Healing School, added: “I’ve really enjoyed watching the pupils take on this challenge. They have had to apply for the role formally through application forms and interviews before proving their worth by working as a team with some taking on Team Leader roles. These roles have been varied including marketing, journalism, designing, building as well as racing the car and maintaining it through the upcoming race. All pupils have stepped up to the mark and have shown how well they are at working within a team as well as to very short deadlines. It’s also been great to have the support from so many of our local businesses as this is a great way to form links between the schools and local companies so we can work together in the future. I am extremely proud of all the pupils and fingers crossed for a successful weekend.”

Pupils from Healing School were asked why they applied to be part of the project.

Ben Newton (Y8):

I would like to go and work on the refineries as I enjoy this and it is a very interesting career choice for me. I would like to achieve this by getting an apprenticeship at HCF CATCH and working on a project like this will help me and give me really good, relevant experience.

Renee Purdam (Y9):

Because I would like to be an engineer when I grow up, and I thought it would be a good way and opportunity to find out more about engineering. I’ve really enjoyed building the car as it’s something I really want to get involved in in the future.

Carly Potter (Y10):

Engineering is a career I’m really interested in both in terms of designing and building a car to race but also in my role as the Team Leader for the logo. I’ve really enjoyed all the activities and gained lots of valuable experiences and I take great pride knowing that everyone is going to see our logo and I helped design that.

Certificate of Achievement for Jonathan Charles on the Nuclear Training Program for Junior Engineers

By | awards | No Comments

Jonathan Charles, Graduate Process Engineer at Engineering Solutions has successfully completed the ‘Nuclear Training Program for Junior Engineers’ conducted by ENGIE.

The program initially entails one year of training, combining theoretical learning with field experience. Technical modules include: safety/security, nuclear safety, radiation protection, nuclear fundamentals, fuel cycle, pressurised water reactors, spent fuel management and decommissioning, maintenance of nuclear power plants etc.

These modules are also accompanied by non-technical modules to develop essential skills for those looking to develop into a nuclear manager role with skills such as: communication, human resources, management behaviour all on the curriculum.

The course allows junior engineers to become a nuclear generalist while forging a solid network within the group.

Jonathan commented “The course was extremely beneficial for those looking to develop further knowledge within the nuclear field and provided an overall background to the industry.  I would definitely recommend the program to others interested in this field.  The program also enabled me with a platform to learn more about the ENGIE Group and the opportunity to develop connections amongst the other ENGIE subsidiary companies.”

On behalf of all within the group we would like to congratulate Jonathan on his achievement.
