As part of ‘Tomorrow’s Engineers Week’ there will be a chance for schools to take part in ‘The Big Assembly’ at 10:30am on the 7th of November 2018.
This is an excellent opportunity for young people who have ideas and passions about engineering to turn them into careers.
Big Assembly is a live video stream to thousands of students across the UK wanting to find out how engineering impacts on the issues they care about, such as saving the environment, animal welfare, staying safe, health and entertainment.
The live stream will be a mix of short inspirational films interspersed with live discussion, which will include the opportunity to take questions from viewers. The films examine exciting engineering career options, including more information on the panel. During the discussion, there will be experts on hands to answer questions sent ‘real time’ using email, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
Schools can register for free now and be part of the biggest career webinar.
Have you ever worked with education? Would you like to? It is easier than you think.
If you can give up an hour or two of your time then all we need is for you to “Do one thing!”
By getting involved you can motivate, inspire and stimulate a pupil by giving them an opportunity to benefit from your knowledge and on the job practical skills.
You can also help them develop their soft skills such as self-confidence, assertiveness, communication, inquisitiveness and creativity.
Can you make your 'one thing' a work placement?
