WEC Group Ltd and The Welding Institute

The Welding Institute has had a long association with WEC Group Ltd through the Association of Welding, Training, Fabrication and Education (AWFTE) and, in particular, through the SkillWeld and Construction Metalwork competitions.

The AWFTE aims to support and promote a standard of excellence in welding, joining and fabrication by providing current and progressive knowledge of practices from around the world to the trainers and educators of our future engineers.

We believe that by encouraging the development of knowledge in our educators, we not only promote advancement in new ideas, but also encourage lifelong learning in their students and future generations. WEC Group Ltd provide an excellent example of how, by working together, the Institute, industry and educators can all support the next generation of engineers.
