New Partnership with Baker Perkins

Greater Peterborough UTC is proud to announce our new partnership with local engineering company Baker Perkins Ltd.

Baker Perkins Ltd is a British engineering company based in Peterborough offering manufacturing and process services to the food industry around the world.

In early 2019 the team here, at GPUTC, made steps to strengthen our employer engagement by hosting our first Employer Outreach Event. This allowed for local employers to listen to the vision we have for our students and look into the ways they can get involved, to make this vision come to life. The response we have had from this event has allowed for more interactions to happen, constantly, between employers and students. Giving our students a head start to a successful career, by exposing them to the world of work.

Baker Perkins have shown a huge interest in our students, attending the majority of our open days and even taking part in the careers mornings we offer to our Year 12 students, to prepare them for their Post 18 choices. For over a year Baker Perkins have been working with the GPUTC to offer exciting career prospects.

As the deal has now been sealed, we will be seeing a lot more of them; particularly in work experience placements, apprenticeships opportunities and the continuation of support for students career aspirations. Baker Perkins have also put in a bid for one of our engineering workshops and as of March 2019 will be branding the room with their character. We look forward to seeing the wall art and even 3D models from their facility soon!

Sarah Worsley from Baker Perkins told GPUTC that "We are very pleased to be supporting Greater Peterborough UTC. We know our people are the most important resource we have, so we understand the importance of supporting and investing in the next generation: they are our future leaders and specialists. We look forward to working in partnership with GPUTC to develop our future engineers."

We are excited about what the future holds with our newest partner and will keep you up to date with all things employer engagement.
