A close relationship with our local schools

At the New Model in Technology & Engineering (NMiTE) we believe that we have a responsibility to work with schools, teachers, students, and parents in our catchment area to help them learn about what a great career engineering can be.

Britain needs young men and women to seriously consider education and careers in engineering. For us to even begin to hope for this transition, young people need to know what engineering is all about.

To encourage children, and in particular girls, to study the challenging subjects needed to build their problem solving, analytical, critical thinking and communication skills – all of which form the right basis for further study and a possible career in engineering – we need to introduce them to classroom and real world work examples that will help them understand that these skills can serve them for a lifetime.

This can only happen by supporting schools to introduce work experience days, by partnering schools with local businesses to help teachers help students make the teaching connection between their classrooms and the world of work, and by providing ongoing support to school leadership to help them understand the evolving needs of employers.
