On Tuesday 11 December, Porsche Centre Bolton was invited to attend an Open Day for the 'Engineering Young Talent Programme' hosted by EXYTE Hargreaves, Bury.
Porsche Centre Bolton, alongside other engineering businesses from the local area, were given 15 minute workshop slots with groups of engineering students from Bury College and surrounding secondary schools, to talk about engineering careers and opportunities within the automotive industry and Porsche.
Adam Calvert, Parts Leader at Porsche Centre Bolton, commented "We take opportunities like this to remind students that engineering can take you into a whole host of career paths, including the automotive industry with companies such as ours. We know that the future of automotive is electrification, and with the new all-electric Taycan, it's great to hear students talking about this and starting to think about the future of engineering."
A special thank to Hargreaves for inviting us and hosting the event. As well as to all the schools and colleges that attended: Broad Oak Sports College, Mount St Josephs High School, Canon Slade High School, Middleton Technical College, Phillips High School, St Monica's High School, Bolton College and Bury College.

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. Fuel economy and CO₂ emission figures are only intended as a means of comparing different types of vehicles tested under the same test cycle. New WLTP homologated vehicles are therefore not directly comparable with any vehicles tested under NEDC.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel consumption and CO₂ values. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, electricity consumption, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
