A work programme based in South Yorkshire is helping to get young people into engineering and manufacturing.

Work-wise, is managed by Rotherham-based Business and Education South Yorkshire, who help to arrange work experience placements between students and businesses in the region.

Sheffield manufacturing firm Firth Rixson are hoping to set on apprentices following the programme.

Their current apprentices were celebrated at the Work-Wise event in Sheffield.
