This is my first year on the Festomane Committee and I am very much enjoying working with a group of local employers, promoting the importance of Manufacturing and Engineering across Gloucestershire.
As the Education Outreach Officer at Renishaw plc, our main aim is to promote STEM subjects in schools and colleges and help bring context to the learning. We support a variety of STEM activities and initiatives across the county hoping to inspire the next generation of Engineers, including our recent Apprentice Information Evening, which brought in a lot of interested (and interesting) young people wanting to find out more about apprenticeships with the company, making it a great success.
Our STEM Ambassadors also attend lots of careers fairs and events, sharing their journey into the Engineering sector.
Being part of Festomane gives us the opportunity to collaborate with like-minded companies to achieve common goals.
