Engineering Pathway Initiative
- 10 Apr 2015
Kelvin Hughes played host to 28 students from local schools in Enfield on Thursday April 9th as part of an initiative designed to make school leavers aware of the opportunities available to pursue careers in engineering.
Supported by Enfield Council and by local MP, Nick de Bois, the Engineering Pathway programme has been developed by Kelvin Hughes together with Johnson Matthey (Precious Metals), London Waste Limited and Hertford Regional College.
The day began with a tour of the Kelvin Hughes facilities in Enfield and was followed by a series of practical activities that were structured to provide the students with a real insight into how large companies work and the range of options that industry has to offer.
Margaret Bundy, HR manager at Kelvin Hughes, commented:
“Informed by our own apprenticeship initiative, the development of the Engineering Pathway resulted from discussions with Enfield Council, Hertford Regional College and other local employers. We all have a shared interest in encouraging young people to think about careers in industry and engineering and in making them aware of the post-school options available, including apprenticeships, traineeships and internships. In short, we want to fuel their imaginations.”
