British Gear Association Gear Training Centre.
We are delighted to announce that as part of our dedication to the continued professional development for all engineers in the mechanical power transmission and associated industries the British Gear Association are developing an elite BGA Gear Training Centre in collaboration with BGA Member Dontyne Gears in Sunderland Tyne and Wear.
The BGA Training Centre will be a dedicated central hub from which our specialist training can be delivered and developed.
Under the supervision of the BGA Technical and Research Management Team the BGA Knowledge Transfer Programme has been developed to assure our status as the leading providers of Gear and Transmission related training in the UK and Europe. The Knowledge Transfer Programme is delivered by the most respected Gear experts in the UK and is considered essential training for engineers and designers.
The BGA Training Centre is equipped with cutting, shaping and grinding machinery where participants of practical courses such as our renowned “Introduction to Gear Cutting” course can get hands on.
We will also be delivering selected seminar based training at the BGA Training Centre including the brand new addition to the KT Programme – “Primary Gears Workshop”. Developed for the BGA by STEM education and outreach specialists at Northumbria University, this workshop supports the Primary National Curriculum for science. It offers an opportunity for engineers and technicians to build links with their local communities, develop their communication skills and make a positive contribution to children’s engineering knowledge.
About the North East Enterprise Zone.
The BGA Training Centre is located in Turbine Business Park. The site has been developed as part of the A19 Ultra Low Carbon Vehicle Corridor which the government identified as an area of high economic potential. This is a fantastic location where the future of manufacturing is being cemented.
From North East LEP chairman Paul Woolston –
“The North East Enterprise Zone is specifically focused on supporting our industrial strength in sectors driving vital new economic growth – low carbon vehicle development, marine offshore, oil and gas, subsea and progressing the next generation of new and renewable energy technology.”
