Year 10 Engineer their Careers

On Thursday 14th March, a group of Year 10 pupils who have shown an interest in an engineering career attended the Big Bang Fair Show with Mr Taylor and Miss Ash at the NEC, Birmingham.  The show is a huge national event with schools attending from across the country.  It gave our pupils an excellent opportunity for them to meet and talk to a vast number of both large and small national providers and employers including, BAE, Rolls Royce, BMW, The Armed Services, the NHS, JCB, racing teams, to mention a few.  This was an extremely hands-on event with pupils able to use the equipment and get a real feel for the different engineering and scientific roles.  It was long but very enjoyable day and the group will have benefitted immensely from these individual meetings and the seminars provided.
