Engineering Education Scheme Wales (EESW) 6th Form Project

Engineering Education Scheme Wales/STEMCymru

The EESW 6th Form Project encourages young people to consider a career in STEM. A professional engineer from a link company works with a team of up to 8 students and their teacher from September-March on a real problem, set by the company.

The Project begins in September. After initial planning to develop their solutions, teams spend time with their engineers and undergraduates to refine their proposal and submit a Project report.

Teams then attend an Awards and Presentation Day to exhibit their work, undergo an assessment and present their findings to a panel of assessors where special awards are given for various categories.

This activity provides multiple benefits:

  • Students gain an insight into Engineering
  • Students can enter for a Gold CREST Award and are part of an accredited scheme to gain part of the Welsh Baccalaureate
  • Schools/Colleges benefit from teacher continuing professional development (CPD)
  • Companies benefit from a raised profile within the local community and could potentially receive financial savings from successful projects
  • This project is a recognised project for the Welsh Baccaluareate
