Lisa Bingley will take up the Operations Manager role on the development of the MIRA Technology Institute (MTI), designed to develop specialist skills for the global automotive industry.
Construction work started on the training facility at the MIRA Technology Park in Nuneaton in September 2017, and is due to open its doors in 2018. The MIRA Technology Institute is being developed with the help of government growth funding and is expected to become a global centre of excellence, helping to nurture specialist skills in new disruptive technology areas such as electrification and driverless cars, ensuring a sustainable supply of future technical specialists and engineers.
The project is led by North Warwickshire and South Leicestershire College and HORIBA MIRA, working closely with a collaboration of key partners including Coventry University, Loughborough University, and the University of Leicester.
Lisa joins the MTI on a secondment to North Warwickshire and South Leicestershire College from HORIBA MIRA, where she is currently a Programme Manager across a range of large programmes. Lisa is due to take up the appointment with immediate effect, working to ensure that the centre’s training provision delivers the vision to provide key skills development to the local, national and international automotive and transport sectors. She will report to the North Warwickshire and South Leicestershire College and MTI Operations Board, which consists of senior level representatives from key partner organisations.
