KMF are delighted to be named finalists at this year's SEMTA Skills Awards. SEMTA, the Science, Engineering, Manufacturing and Technologies Alliance is a not-for-profit organisation that develops engineering skills for the future of the UK's most advanced sectors.
The SEMTA Skills Awards celebrate the best of British engineering by recognising the talented individuals and inspiring businesses that are making a difference within this dynamic industry sector.
Over 300 applications were received for the nine categories, and the judges had the arduous task of whittling these down to three finalists per category.
Proud to have two finalists, KMF's Jenny Conlon has been selected as a contender for Skills Champion of the Year while the KMF Young Engineer of the Year project is named a finalist within the Skills Innovation of the Year Award.
Jenny has been instrumental in the development of KMF's acclaimed in-house Apprenticeship program and has shared her knowledge with other organisations through factory tours and speaking at national conferences.
Her passion for developing skills starts at the grassroots, actively working with young people, from primary schools through to colleges, to inspire students and show them the incredible career opportunities that are available throughout the STEM subjects.
The KMF Young Engineer of the Year project has seen the company work with more than 10,000 Year 10 school students in a fun and inspiring way.
The project both supports young people through a significant academic year and gives mentoring support to help prepare students for the world of work, opening up opportunities to help them make important career choices.
All of the finalists can be seen at SEMTA Awards website, and KMF wishes all the finalists the best of luck and looks forward to attending the Gala Awards Dinner at the Park Lane Hilton on February 10, 2016.
