15-MAR-2017:: Introducing the Industrial Cadets

The Industrial Cadets initiative offers young people key skills and career insights in STEM industries. Penny Tysoe explains. It is now four years since Industrial Cadets, a quality standard for workplace experiences, was rolled out nationally. Inspired by an idea from the Prince of Wales, the accreditation has grown and developed considerably in that time.

At the other end of the scale, M-TEC Engineering Projects, a Coventry-based design and engineering consultancy to the automotive and engineering sectors, has found that it has been able to take a stream of young people aged 15 to 18 individually on gold level accredited programmes which last seven days.

Lawrence Bridger, one of the successful Industrial Cadets, and a student at WMG Academy for Young Engineers in Coventry, told us: “My experience at M-TEC has really opened my eyes to the work they do and the possible careers in the wider automotive industry. In little over a week I had learned important engineering design skills and successfully managed a 3D printing project that was really stretching. The experience has certainly made me seriously consider a career in engineering or a related discipline.” Read the full article here.
