THE Mineral Products Qualifications Council has announced its inaugural ‘BIG Event’ on Thursday 29 November at MP House, Eastwood, Nottingham.
Attractions at the BIG Event will include: MPQC’s new mobile plant simulators, which can benefit businesses through training and improved fuel-efficient operations; the Minerals Matter project, which aims to attract people into the sector; plus taster sessions of MPQC’s new courses and information on the new range of IEMA environmental courses.
Representatives from MP Skills and the University of Derby will also be on hand to answer levy and apprenticeship questions at an Apprenticeship Surgery, whilst the Institute of Quarrying’s Skills Wheel will, for the first time, feature MP Skills courses, making it easier than ever for people to develop their skills and career. As well as being able to navigate through MPQC’s courses and the Skills Wheel via a brand-new interactive Course Finder screen, visitors will also have the chance to experience a blast using the EPC augmented reality Virtual Blast.
