Raising aspirations and encouraging young people into manufacturing
We welcomed 13 schools, 350 students and 30+ exhibitors across the two events in Huddersfield and Halifax. Feedback was extremely positive with manufacturers delighted at the quality of questions the young people were asking and the genuine interest in all things manufacturing. The students and teachers were excited by what they saw and experienced and all stayed well over their allotted time. The manufacturers showcased the amazing range of products they offer and really opened the students’ eyes to the possibilities of an exciting career in manufacturing.
Overall there was an average 50% increased in interest in manufacturing measured by the evaluation forms the students completed which was a fantastic result and just the response we hoped for!
