Posted 19 November 2018 · Add Comment

Nasmyth Group has officially opened its training Academy, providing facilities for apprentices from across the Group's 13 precision engineering companies.



Above: A new dedicated training centre for Nasmyth Group Academy apprentices was officially opened on the 15th November at Nasmyth Bulwell in Pinxton, Nottinghamshire.

The new centre will provide the Group’s apprentices with a dedicated classroom as well as a workshop area fitted with a range of machining and tooling equipment to develop the apprentices’ skills and techniques during their training programme. All apprentices from across the Nasmyth Group of 13 precision engineering companies will have access to the new training centre.

Peter Smith, Chairman and CEO of Nasmyth Group, commented: “At Nasmyth Group 10% of our engineers are apprentices and I’m delighted that we are now able to provide our apprentices with an official space of their own. Not only do I believe that this sets us apart from our competitors, but we are establishing new standards for the development of the UK’s next generation of engineering and manufacturing professionals.”

Apprenticeships Coordinator at Nasmyth Group, Sean Parker, said of the new centre: “The Academy was established in 2014 when we had just two apprentices working with us. Since then, the scheme has grown exponentially, with more apprentices joining us each year as word spreads to schools, colleges and the wider industry.  Our participants are gaining valuable hands-on experience across many areas of engineering and I am absolutely thrilled that they now also have this exciting space to call their own.”

The ribbon cutting celebration was attended by a number of apprentices, Nasmyth Group HR Managers, representatives from local schools and colleges, clients, industry and Councillor Mary Dooley, Bolsover District Council Cabinet Member for Partnerships and Transformation who said, “On behalf of Pinxton Parish Council and Bolsover District Council it was an absolute pleasure to open the new Apprentice Academy at Nasmyth Group.  Our young local talent need the skills that Nasmyth are teaching them and with the training plans and modules that are being provided I’m sure they will do very well in the future – it’s inspiring!  Nasmyth is leading the way with apprenticeship training and it’s heart-warming to know that the skills of the workers who have been with the company for many, many years are being passed on to the next generation of engineers.”



Nasmyth Group believes that keeping the UK at the forefront of industrial design and manufacturing requires substantial investment in the future generation of engineers. The Academy proves the Group’s commitment not only within its local communities but across the country.  Ensuring the success of the Academy requires dedication not only from the Company but also from schools, colleges and other training providers so that the quality and delivery of the apprenticeship scheme creates a genuine path to achievement.

Nasmyth Group is a cohesive group of engineering businesses that consistently provides high quality products and services to the aerospace, defence and allied markets. The Group offers world class design, manufacturing assembly and product support services across the fields of precision mechanical and electro-mechanical engineering.
