OESAA Chairman, Nigel Morgan, said: “After three successive OESAA Academy Live events rolled out at the start of the year, we’re delighted to return with two new dates, locations, and an adapted format. I know both colleges are excited at the prospect of welcoming our members and technicians to their facilities, and I am confident our trade evening will inspire the audience.”

He added: “The student days have been invaluable to us; the energy and passion shown, as well as the apprentices’ existing knowledge, was encouraging. It demonstrated that there is a genuine appetite to learn and create a career in this fantastic trade.”
