Plumbing students and apprentices were visited by a Guest Lecturer from Mira Headstart.
Designed to help support the next generation of plumbers and installers, the Mira Headstart programme allows students to get hands-on with Mira’s market leading products to learn about shower installation direct from tutors with real industry experience.
During a half-day session, our students enjoyed a presentation as well as a practical workshop teaching them how to plumb in a shower system.
Shirley Airey, Business Development Officer at Northumberland College, said:
“We were delighted to welcome the team from Mira Headstart to Northumberland College.
“We are always proactively seeking new ways to partner with businesses to provide our students with teaching and learning activities which will enhance their overall college experience.”
“Part of our remit as a vocational course provider is to ensure that our students leave the College ready for work. Being able to provide students with real, industry-driven expertise helps us to make this happen so we are incredibly grateful to companies like Mira for taking the time out to spend with us.”
Dan Martin, Market Analyst at Mira, said:
“At Mira, we have a long history of supporting the future of the industry, and we pride ourselves on our ethos and passion around apprentices. Headstart is one of the ways we take that support beyond our gates and we are pleased that this has been successful with students at Northumberland College.”
