“Thank you again for inviting us to Mach 2016. The students thoroughly enjoyed the day with many of the girls considering studying a Design and Technology subject in further education, so overall a great success”

"Our trip to MACH 2016 was a success and it was enjoyed by everyone from PETA Ltd who attended, I had loads of feedback from the students and also from their employers which was one of the points that I was trying to achieve, as well as giving the students an opportunity to see the ‘big picture’ of manufacturing, and not to mention to cover ‘enrichment opportunities’ for Ofsted ratings"

Peter Huskinson, PETA Limited
