Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths
Through our talent pool of STEM contacts, local companies provide ‘hands-on’ technological or engineering activities for pupils in a school’s technology department. Pupils work through the activities in small groups with the support of company personnel.
Roadshows usually operate for 1 or 2 days so that the maximum number of pupils can benefit and the activity can be targeted at particular aspects of the technology curriculum.
Construction related activities
Supported by a local social landlord utilising their dedicated training centre, these activities aim to increase the awareness and interest of pupils in the construction and trade skills industries.
Year 10, 11 & 12 students are supported to gain accreditation in construction skills whilst still at school through a variety of support, from construction site visits, challenges, arranged activities and employer links.
This project supports the Young Apprenticeship in Construction and the Diploma in Construction & the Built Environment.
Education Busines Partnership can arrange for small groups of students to visit local companies as a support for the technology curriculum. Suitable for any year group, visits are tailor-made following a meeting with the appropriate lead in school.
