Engineering team complete BIT course
Thursday, 10th March 2011.
A group of ten employees at Machinepart Engineering in Haverhill have successfully completed a Business Improvement Techniques NVQ level two course, delivered in the workplace by West Suffolk College.
Lecturer Bryan Panton presented the certificates to the successful Machinepart engineering team at the firm’s Hanchett Hall premises last week.
Managing director Robert Haylock said: “By putting our staff through this course they have become more aware of ways and means to improve productivity of the business.”
Mr Panton said: “Business Improvement Techniques (BIT) is a programme developed to make use of the lean manufacturing philosophy and apply it to all sectors.
"This group took on board these techniques and used them to develop real and sustainable business improvements for their company. As well as the benefits to the company the individuals’ achievements are recognised in their NVQ.”
The employees who successfully completed the qualification were: Bruce Milne, David Lee, Graham Cox, James Catten, Julian Murcott, Luke Morgan, Sam Clarke, Simon Walford, Steven Edwards, and Tom Jackson.
West Suffolk College works with more than 1,200 employers in the region, helping them upgrade workforce skills through apprenticeships, continuing professional development and a range of training at all levels.
The college is also developing a suite of BIT-related workshops and short courses offering flexible programmes tailored to individual requirements. To find out more, contact Services to Business on 01284 716246 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
