CAL International were thrilled to be part of the ‘Engineering Your Future’ event, run by All About Stem in Liverpool. The event is one in a series of career days for 16-18 year olds who are studying science, maths or engineering at GNVQ or A-Level together with their STEM subject teachers.
The ‘Engineering Your Future’ events have been established as an opportunity for attendees to see that engineering is a career worth pursuing, and to help them make an informed choice.
The Liverpool event was held at Anfield Stadium on Friday 11th October, and consisted of a number of workshops held by employers such as CAL International, as well as having a careers marketplace with a number of other engineering companies taking stands for the pupils to tour and discover more about engineering and all of the fantastic opportunities available!
CAL’s workshop was organised and run by the apprentices, and began by them explaining who CAL are, what exactly it is that we do and examples of some of CAL’s design engineering projects. The pupils were then given a written activity with questions to test their engineering knowledge! The team with the highest score at the end of the day won a prize for each member, consisting of a digital vernier, engineer’s reference hand book, a data charts and reference tables booklet and a drawing/writing set. The team with the highest score over all of the ‘Engineering Your Future’ events will also win a 3D printer for their school or college!
Lee Fogg, CAL International’s Technical Director, attended the event along with a number of CAL apprentices. Many of the attendees took the opportunity to ask Lee and the CAL team questions about routes into engineering and what working in the industry is like.
All About Stem supported and facilitated the event and it was jointly-coordinated and sponsored by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, the Institution of Civil Engineers, the Institution of Engineering and Technology, the Institution of Chemical Engineers, the Nuclear Institute and the British Computer Society.
CAL International are proud to continually support All About Stem and the fantastic work they do to with schools and businesses to promote exciting and rewarding Science, Technology Engineering and Maths opportunities; inspiring young people right across the North West! We look forward to being part of more of the upcoming ‘Engineering Your Future’ events!
