The Palmer Foundation Engineering village – explore careers in automotive engineering.
Inspiring the next generation of young people to come into the automotive industry is one of the key objectives of our Engineering Village. So we’re delighted that this space is sponsored by the Palmer Foundation, set up by Dr Andy and Hitomi Palmer, whose own career started with an apprenticeship before progressing to senior positions with Nissan and Aston Martin. Andy is currently Chief Executive Officer and Executive Vice Chairman of Switch Mobility.
In the Engineering Village you’ll not only have the chance to talk to the Palmer Foundation about their apprenticeships, but you’ll also be able to talk to experts from various colleges and universities who are offering courses in engineering, agriculture and other subjects.
Students from Bolton University will also be there with their historic Formula One car, where they’ll explain and demonstrate the preparation involved with their iconic Ensign F1 car.
