EYF Career Awareness Day is a one-day careers event that has been established to show attendees that engineering is a career worth pursuing. This careers event is primarily targeted for students, aged 17-18 years old, who are studying Science, Maths or Engineering at GNVQ or A-Level to learn about potential future Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) careers from actual employees in the industry.

The key aims of this event are:

• To showcase the breadth of engineering fields students can get involved in.

• To cultivate an association between students and potential employers.

• To encourage development of new problem-solving skills through workshops, and to raise students’ aspirations regarding their own capabilities and interests.

 

The event will also support schools in meeting following Gatsby Benchmarks:

• Linking curriculum learning to careers

• Encounters with employers and employees

 

Running from 10am - 3.45pm on Friday 2nd November 2018; this years’ event will have employers and workshop sessions run by Atkins, Aecom, Surrey Satellite Technology and Fluor. There will also be a session ran by Kingston University and awards given to close. The activities are designed to suit those in Years 12-13 and will showcase the fantastic opportunities offered by engineering degrees and apprenticeships as well as challenge students problem solving skills and way of thinking.
