Supporting the Diploma in Engineering

This London Engineering Project paper, from The Royal Academy of Engineering, describes a range of activity days which supported the engineering diploma in schools who have students who may decide to continue studying the subject to degree level.

The project's activities, designed for Years 7 and 8 and for different stages before pupils choose their options, greatly helped with recruiting for the new Diploma in Engineering. Other activities aimed to help Diploma students, including those doing the Level 2 Higher Project, with aspects of the syllabus.

The format for the activity day included:

*A hands-on engineering activity or engineering challenge
*The opportunity to meet professional engineers and/or academics
*Undergraduate LEP student ambassadors supporting the students in their work
