Student Services Work Experience Team arranged a visit for eleven IT BTEC students and their teachers to Phixos, part of the Blakebrook Group at Whittington, Worcester.
Phixos design, write and test software and firmware programmes that control safety systems in aeroplanes and trains. Critical safety controls such as speed and braking are controlled by these programmes in aircraft and trains all over the world.
Three WSFC alumni met with the students after securing HND and degree apprenticeships with the company. Richard Rollins, Head of IT discussed apprentice opportunities with our students as they take on two apprentices every year. We will support and advise any students that apply.
