As one of the north’s most pioneering digital design consultancies, we were delighted to be invited to deliver a £36k suite of high tech digitally interactive learning resources for BAE System’s Academy for Skills and Knowledge (ASK), based at its Samlesbury site in Lancashire.

The £15.6m training facility – built in 2016, boasts state of the art AR and VR learning resources to support its 200 plus apprentices and graduates’ training in advanced engineering and manufacturing technology. The facility also supports school, college and university enrichment placements.

“BAE Systems has an incredible heritage and is one of the most innovative manufacturing companies in the UK right now, so we were delighted to be given the opportunity to create this resource for its Academy,” explained Jessica Wright, managing director of Peel Interactive. “The aim of the ASK facility is to stimulate continuous learning and autonomous thinking and the digital resource we have created seeks to deliver an interactive facility for visitors to ASK to browse career opportunities, innovation, the heritage of BAE and much more.”

BAE Systems is a British multinational defence, security, and aerospace company which over its 100 year history has continued to stay at the forefront of emerging and game changing technologies in the arenas of military, aerospace, and security capabilities.
