BTEC Engineering students from the GSK-sponsored Sir Charles Kao UTC visited GSK Ware on Friday 8th July. The Year 12 students took part in a variety of activities which will enrich their studies.
Led by a number of GSK staff, they learned about the engineering that goes into designing, developing and manufacturing medical devices. These devices are needed to deliver respiratory and biological drugs with the aim of gaining the best therapeutic result for the patient.
The students were accompanied by Dr Paul Westlake, who is chair of the UTC’s governing body and also an early talent manager at GSK. Paul said:
“The Sir Charles Kao UTC has medical technology as one of its two specialisms, so it’s very relevant to GSK. Active involvement of industrial sponsors is a key part of the UTC value proposition. I’m really delighted and grateful that so many GSK colleagues helped me to run this event.”
Principal Mike McKeaveney said
“I am grateful for the support from all our sponsors, and of course GSK for this trip. The time, energy and enthusiasm all our sponsors give to our students is second-to-none.
The real life experiences they provide are integral in supporting our unique technical curriculum.”
