New CAD training programme for schools and colleges

Fusion 360 is an online tool that connects your entire product development process in a single cloud-based platform.

You can design, render, virtually assemble parts and test designs through this one tool.

Launching this autumn, we're running a new programme of Fusion 360 CPD. Taking teachers and technicians from Computer Aided Design (CAD) beginners to accredited teachers in four months. State-funded schools and colleges will receive an ENTHUSE bursary to help cover the cost of attending.

The training is being run in partnership with Fusion 360 accredited trainer, Steve Taylor, who is the Autodesk Partnership Development Executive at Connect.

“The great thing about Fusion 360 is that educators and students are able to, very quickly, pick up the basic design skills to allow them to create and share designs using the collaboration, freeform modelling, animation, rendering, simulation, CAD and CAM tools all found in one software.”

Fusion 360 has a free educational licence and can be used at both home and school, allowing students to work on their designs in their own time. It also helps students collaborate on designs, with shared access provided to files through cloud-based storage.
