Pathways into engineering

Future engineers took part in a first for the area just before half-term. Nexus Engineering Training Centre hosted a Pathways into Engineering event giving pupils from across the local area a chance to explore the many different possible careers available in the fields of STEM. Pupils heard from many local companies and employers in fields encompassing all methods of energy generation, manufacturing, electronics and careers guidance. A huge thank you to all involved, to Miss Rix for organising, to Bob Beard from Nexus for masterminding, hosting and organising the event, and to Morgan Sindall, James Fisher Marine Services, Vattenfall UK, API Technologies, Round House, Linkx packaging, RPC M&H Plastics and OPITO for taking time from their days to present to our pupils.
