Xtrac are pleased to announce they have received an award for their Student Placement Scheme from the National Council for Work Experience.
Xtrac accepts 4 students per year within the Engineering Department. These students are placed in Design Teams (2) / Production Engineering (1) and Gear Technology (1) departments. The recruitment process is demanding, with 150+ students applying for 4 positions.
The students are mentored throughout their time at Xtrac by Senior Designers and they work on real projects with real timescales – nearly all are employed by the company and return full time after graduation.
This is not only a great training experience for the students to experience a high precision motorsport engineering environment, but also provides a great recruiting ladder for Xtrac.
Piers Thynne, Xtrac’s Engineering Project Manager who is responsible for the running of the placement scheme, was on hand to receive the award from Hertfordshire University’s Dr David Ashall and Senior Lecturer Matt Harrington who nominated Xtrac for the award.
