ICE Board Factory Open Evenings


The Board who manage the Industrial Centre of Excellence based at Keighley Campus are opening up the doors to their factories for a series of open evenings. There will be full factory tours and opportunities to ask staff about their jobs. This is a unique opportunity for young people interested in a career in engineering to come along and see the clean and high tech world of modern engineering and to look behind the scenes of some of the best of the Aire Valley’s manufacturers.
