Youngsters got a taste of what life is like for workers at one of the county’s biggest employers.
More than 150 youngsters accompanied their parents to work at BAE Systems sites for the annual ‘Take Our Sons and Daughters to Work Day’ as part of a global initiative to help young people experience the world of work.
At the company’s sites at Warton and Samlesbury, where it manufactures some of the world’s most advanced military aircraft students shadowed their parents as they went about their day-to-day work.
The youngsters visiting Warton were given a behind-the-scenes tour of the final assembly facility where the Eurofighter Typhoon jet is put together, and the manufacturing facility for the company’s Hawk trainer jet.
Richard Hamer, education director & head of early career programmes, BAE Systems, said: “The day offers children more of an understanding of what we do here at our sites in Lancashire as well as a unique insight into the jobs of their parents.”
