As part of Camvac’s commitment to Thetford Business Forum and developing young talent, we welcomed a number of tutors from West Suffolk College for a tour of our site and an insight into the various apprenticeship opportunities Camvac has to offer. The tour was organised so the tutors could better understand Camvac, what we manufacture, and the uniqueness of our metallised film products. The tutors can then discuss the apprenticeships in Thetford businesses with their students in more depth, as they have experienced the businesses themselves.
The tour of local businesses was put on so the tutors could benefit from understanding better the opportunities for placing students in Thetford businesses, and as part of TBF and Camvac’s continued efforts to attract young people to the area to take up a career with one of the businesses located in and around the town. TBF opted to invite tutors from a range of subjects so they could use the opportunity to witness, firsthand, the different apprenticeships in Thetford that are available for young adults who do not want or wish to attend university.
The day involved the Tutors visiting an array of businesses, from varying industry sectors, around the Thetford area. First stop was Thetford Garden Centre, followed by Shadwell Stud, Camvac and a Logistics business.
Camvac welcomed the college tutors for a full site tour, from our offices through to our film metallising facilities and dispatch. During the visit members of West Suffolk College witnessed the entire barrier process from stock control, film metallising, through to slitting and packaging ready for dispatch.
