Students from North Walsham High School were the latest visitors to Swift to learn about stem careers in the workplace. #stem #stemambassors #inspiringaviation #engineersofthefuture #education #Norfok
A group of budding engineers from UTCN came to visit Swift Technology Group last week to present details about their Greenpower race project.
Two teams of students, aged between 16 - 17, aspire to be engineers in the future and hope that entry into the Greenpower event will help make them stand out from others when moving into further education or the workplace.
Both teams are looking for sponsorship from local businesses and Swift hopes that we will be able to offer them design support for the competition.
Greenpower Education Trust s a UK based charity with an outstanding track record in kick starting careers in engineering. They help unlock potential and spark enthusiasm for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) through the excitement of motorsport. This is the second year running that Swift has been involved in the competition as part of our STEM initiatives.
We would like to take this opportunity to wish both teams good luck in this competition. Watch this space for updates!
Mary Keen, from Paston College, showed fantastic initiative by arranging a visit for herself and a group of fellow Physics and Maths students to Swift HQ last week. The group was engaged, enthusiastic and asked all the right questions - we were all very impressed.
Visits like these form part of our STEM initiatives and are valuable to both employer and employee. If you are a student and would like to arrange a visit for you and your study friends, please complete the online form - initiative goes a long way in business.
"We had a great time and everyone appreciated being able to see what it's actually like in the workplace" Mary Keen
It was wonderful to host another STEM event with a fantastic group of aspiring engineers and aviators from UTCN last week. The students were enthusiastic and showed great interest in the transition from education to the workplace.
Thank you to Sophie Skipp, Employment Engagement Co-ordinator at UTCN, and her team, for our continued Partnership and help in inspiring future generations to STEM careers.
