Courses on offer include: Performing Engineering Operations, Mechanical Manufacturing Engineering and Aeronautical Engineering.

West Suffolk College will provide specialist advice to ensure that companies establish the right training for employee needs.

For companies looking to recruit, the S2B team will help develop the right profile and support companies throughout the process of matching the right person to the role.
