deal Industries has developed a partnership with Warrington & Vale Royal College as part of a planned outreach programme with the further education sector across the UK. Keen to invest in helping to embed a culture of best practice, safety and installation consistency in the next generation of electrical sector professionals, Ideal Industries has donated a large supply of its In- Sure Push-In and Lever Wire Connectors to Warrington & Vale Royal College. The connectors will enable students to train and take exams with this simple-to-use, faster and more consistent alternative to connector strips. The College will also benefit from a number of safe isolation kits and testing equipment donated by Ideal Industries. Product donations are just part of Ideal Industries’ college outreach programme, however; the company’s team will also provide a series or talks and demonstrations for students and engagement with both students and staff will feed in to the company’s new product development programme. Brett Smyth, Ideal Industries’ general manager for the UK and Europe explains: “We’re keen to work with young electricians and their teachers to close the gap between education and the workplace and ensure we help them meet the challenges of the profession both now and in the future. “As a Warrington based company, this initiative enables us support our local community but it will also form part of a wider knowledge sharing programme with the further education sector. We see it as a way of both encouraging best practice amongst future electrical professionals and building on a tradition of innovation at Ideal Industries.” As part of the partnership, Warrington & Vale Royal College’s electrical teaching

team will provide technical consultancy to Ideal Industries and the partners will work together on a proposed skills competition. Dave Love, curriculum and apprentice manager at Warrington & Vale Royal College adds: “We often struggle to fund new equipment to enable our students to practice installation skills and learn the latest techniques. Thanks to Ideal Industries’ generosity, our students will have access to resources that will help them learn how to make faster connections and safer isolations; important skills that will stand them in good stead for their future careers. “As a college, we welcome any opportunity to engage with commercial businesses, particularly, if, like this partnership, it benefits our students.”
