We offer cutting-edge world of work programmes encompassing STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) to secondary school and college students. These programmes enable students to understand about the different industries available to them, the lifecycle of products, services development and how people in different roles work together within a company.

Additionally, our programmes help pupils develop and understand the technical and soft skills they'll need for employment. By formal accreditation through the AQA Unit Award Scheme students gain recognition for the soft skills they’ve developed such as:

  • Problem Solving
  • Teamwork
  • Team Building and Leadership
  • Research
  • Communication
  • Presentation

Throughout the programmes, we invite representatives from companies to come in and give students an insight into their industry and their company specifically, and give them an understanding of their role and what skills the students will need to gain a position within the company.

By working with us your students will benefit from: 

  • Cutting-edge world of work programmes
  • Meeting local employers
  • Programmes that can be tailored to meet their needs 
  • Becoming work-ready 
  • AQA certification
  • Sparking their interest in careers & employment
  • Technical knowledge & soft skills development

Out programmes are suitable for use in STEM clubs and school clubs in general, as one-off workshops or in school and they can be used to support the curriculum.

Robotics Programme

Our 12-week robotics programme challenges young people to design and develop a robot to take over admin tasks in an office, for example meeting and greeting, using LEGO Mindstorm EV3s. They have to decide the requirements of the robot (e.g. it will need to be stable and probably wheel-based if it is to wander around an office all day), build the physical robot, and programme it to move about/pick stuff up/talk.

Students also have to develop marketing materials to promote their robot, including a simple website and promotional video, and we help them understand how introducing a robot to an office might impact current office staff and its environment, and business processes.

Students love seeing their creations come to life, while the programming element aligns to the computer science national curriculum, and can be adjusted depending on the age and ability of the students. The programmes also give students the opportunities to identify their interest and where their strengths and weaknesses lie, and how essential is it to collaborate and work as a team, much like working on a real life project! 

The Robotics Programme would especially suit students of:

  • Business
  • Physics
  • Maths
  • Art & Design
  • Computer science
  • Engineering
  • Media
