Gender in Engineering

Stylli Charalampous is coming up to North Lindsey next Monday to talk about Gender in relation to Engineering.  It is a morning workshop and there is room for additional people.  If you fancy coming, please contact and I will send you all the details.

Also we are visiting Hitec Electronic Products on Tuesday 13 December.  Hitec are a small innovative business who, amongst other things, make products from STEALTH materials.  Facinating place.  Good for physics and engineering staff.  Again contact me if you want more information.

Is anyone else trying to get CPD to work on employers premises?  Are you having any luck?  Good feedback?

Hi Ken,
We had Women into Engineering CPD Events in the last phase which went really well. Found a useful resource on the eLibrary entitled Getting Girls into Engineering, this may be useful for your CPD event.
Regards
jon

Hi Ken

This is very timely for us in the South East and hoping to cover this important agenda in the New Year. I remember the WISE bus visiting schools some years ago and keen to support and promote girls progression into FE and beyond. Thanks also Jon for flagging up the resouce on the eLibrary - could be useful for us too and exploring other opportunities.

Regards

Tim
