National Learning at Work Week

Posted on May 15, 2019

The 13th of May marks the first day of National Learning at Work Week. The annual event is coordinated by Campaign for Learning and is aimed at promoting life-long learning, in this case, through the workplace.

In March this year, Houghton International was proud to announce the launch of the very first Fluid Intelligence Academy, a state-of-the-art training programme and facility aimed at promoting employee learning and development as well as process improvement.

The Academy is hosted in conjunction with Training 2000 at the Advanced Manufacturing and Automation Centre (AMAC) in Blackburn. Here, Houghton can offer their customer’s staff training in machining techniques, coolant awareness, processes, machine programming and tooling.

The hands-on syllabus allows trainees to receive the same training that Houghton International’s own technical staff receive.

As well as this, the facility is equipped to provide manufacturers with a contained environment in which they can simulate their own processes and learn how to improve them.

The facility and its equipment are industry leading and provided in connection with a variety of Houghton International’s strategic partners, including; Freddy, Wogaard, Veolia, Wallenius Water and other major names.

Through the Fluid Intelligence Academy, staff are able to undergo an advanced programme of workplace learning, in the way that Campaign for Learning is keen to promote.
