Vauxhall Motors UK has recently been recognised for its work in the education sector.
On the 30th January 2014, Vauxhall received the EEF Partnership with Education award at the EEF Future Manufacturing Awards 2013. This work was acknowledged as Vauxhall seem to be doing a lot of work with undergraduates in the community.
The EEF is the manufacturers organisation for UK manufacturing companies and the awards ceremony took place at the EEF Gala dinner at the Grand Connaught rooms in London. The image below shows Vauxhall receiving this award:
The judges at the awards said of Vauxhall, that they have took manufacturing in a new direction and are setting the pace in terms of showing an interest in technology, engineering, maths and science through its many school visits. Vauxhall has been sending out their young undergraduates from various Vauxhall sites into schools to share on the subjects mentioned above.
