A key responsibility for Ansaldo NES is to actively involve itself in projects and to support the local community where it is engaged in business.
Involving Ansaldo NES with key community stakeholders ensures that the company gives back to communities that have served the business so well.
Engineering Education Scheme
Driven through Ansaldo NES’s engineering department, the company has been supporting the engineers of tomorrow through the Engineering Development Trust (EDT) Engineering Education Scheme (EES).
Sponsoring Year 12 mathematics and science students from a number of colleges around the West Midlands, students and teachers work with Ansaldo NES on real engineering projects, presenting their engineering solutions at a national assessment day to a panel of industry professionals.
The 6 month scheme provides students with an in-depth experience in science, engineering and technology that will enable them to make an informed decision about their future studies and career.
Following the successful completion of the course, students are awarded EES National Certificate and a Duke of Edinburgh Skills Certificate.
In recent years, students working with Ansaldo NES have produced ProEngineer models and working prototypes of a hose reel, which won the top award at the national assessment day held at the NEC in Birmingham.
Workington Town RLFC
Following approval for the construction of our North West division, the company was keen to give something back to the community in West Cumbria. The opportunity arose to become the main club sponsor of Workington Town Rugby League Football Club, signing a 3 year agreement in 2010.
Ansaldo NES are extremely proud to support such an integral part of the community, not only with the financial support of the club, but also supporting the long term development of “Town”.
Under our former company name of NES, the company is not only the club's main sponsor, but also supports community programmes and the development of the club's scholarship setup.
