It was great to see many different organisations and contractors working together in The Tees Valley yesterday, talking about skills, innovation, productivity and sustainability…
Welcome to our new website brought to you by Engineering Together and kindly facilitated by MAA Digital (www.maadigital.co.uk).
For now it is a work in progress which we will over the coming weeks and months build upon. Working TOGETHER we can make a real difference. In the long term this website will help navigate through the plethora of STEM and engineering organisations and enable everyone to find resources.
Ideas and comments on this webpage are most welcome.
Career Ready (https://careerready.org.uk/) are a charity who aim to improve social mobility by taking encouraging students from disadvantaged backgrounds to go to university.
The remit includes a wide selection of resourced activities which you support on the ground. Career Ready works with TVCA career hub mostly in 23 of the 64 Tees Valley schools and also 4 Further Education (FE) colleges.
We have lots of overlaps and have shared contacts to increase our effectiveness by working more closely together.
We were delighted that Monster Confidence were confirmed as visiting the Tees Valley (https://monsterconfidence.co.uk/).
Computer Science & Software Engineering Sub Group were welcomed
Role – Act as point of contact for Software Engineering / Computer Science contacts and information.
Champion – Andrew Simpson, BCS The Chartered Institute for IT
What a great meeting with Seymour’s finding out about how Engineering Together can link into the community work they do and their new exciting Skills Academy.
We’re a proud partner of the River Tees Rediscovered Landscape Partnership after being invited to their strategy meeting.
Looking forward to working together to promote our outdoor engineering schemes in and around the Tees Valley.
Engineering Together were happy to meet The Start Studio UK to talk about creative learning in the Tees Valley and how it can promote engineering and improve student resilience.
High Tide (https://www.hightidefoundation.co.uk/) are a registered charity about 7 years old who put on lots of different careers events in order to inform young people, mostly under privileged about the opportunities for work along the river.
Events include river trips, week long cadetships, taking students through the life of a mobile phone from Taiwan to Asda, making port to part trips including international visits to Rotterdam.
High Tide have engaged members and regularly help with events and go into schools (mock interviews, assemblies, workshops etc). Sectors include transportation and engineering businesses, retail, finance, law, web design, IT and the Harbour Police.
These overlaps with Engineering Together are looking forward to working more closely in the future.
Our Champions have of course been very busy, and in our September meeting we found about all their good work.
Reminder that ‘many hands make light work’ – volunteers for active participation in any
aspect of what we are doing would be most welcome.
Our handbook was developed and rolled out at our September meeting which has helped form the basis of the website.
Excited to have been asked to outline Engineering Together to the Tees Valley Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).
Lots of contacts made and the alignments with the Tees Valley strategies were evident.
Exciting times 🙂
