Year 12 Business students had the opportunity to visit one of Caterpillar’s largest European factories recently. The Peterborough site, one of several across the UK, specialises in engine design, research and production for a wide range of their specialist vehicles. This gave AS students an excellent opportunity to see Research and Development, advances in technology, production techniques and logistics at first hand.
Caterpillar provided a varied itinerary including presentations from key staff, factory tours and interactive discussions. Students also had the opportunity to learn about their growing apprenticeship programme covering careers in sectors including marketing, engineering and product development. Students were excellent ambassadors for the Academy and we have already received an invitation to return.
