Calling Engineering Companies
Downlands School in Hassocks are desperately looking for placements for Work Experience in Engineering for their current Year 10 students. Can you help? They need places during the week July 17th – 21st. If you make products, use machinery, produce items made out of wood or metal, you may well be able to help.
It is very important that students who have an interest in engineering should be encouraged to pursue that interest. As a country we have shut down too much of our manufacturing in the recent past, and now we need to get back to making goods for ourselves again. We must encourage engineers – they are vital for the country’s future.
If you take a student you will not only be helping that person; you will also be doing your bit to revive manufacturing in Britain. And it may be that the person to whom you give a place will go on to be an employee of yours or an entrepreneur of the future.
"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
