Mini Sport CNC Engineer selected for Team UK
We have been developing and engineering parts for the Mini since the very begining of our 45 years history and have always strived to improve an enthusiasts driving experience in any way possible and keep Britains beloved Mini on the roads for many years to come. In recent years this has been undertaken by our very own engineering centre, Motorsport Advanced Development, otherwise known as M.A.D.
To uphold this vision we invest in the latest CNC Machinery and the highest qualified and trained Engineers at M.A.D. One of our younger engineers Ben Anderson who obtained a BTEC 1st and is now currently studying for a HNC recently took part in the Skills UK competition. He performed well in the event and this has lead to him having the opportunity to represent team UK in Leipzig at the World Skill International Competition. Ben was one of the highest scoring competitors and Team UK have invited him to train with them and three other competitors in preparation for the World Skills Event.
However all four of the team will not be representing the UK as only one competitor can take part. To narrow the field down to just one Ben is now attending various team training exercises across the country, learning from the best and finely tuning his skills in order to state a place as the UKs representative for the CNC Turning Competition at World Skills International that takes place from 2nd – 7th July 2013
Over its 60 year history, WorldSkills International (formerly known as the “Skill Olympics”) has come to symbolise the pinnacle of excellence in vocational training. Every two years hundreds of young skilled people, accompanied by their teachers and trainers, gather together from around the world to compete before the public in the skills of their various trades and test themselves against demanding international standards. They represent the best of their peers drawn from regional and national skill competitions held currently in 52 countries/regions.
