BAE Systems - Engineering Taster Week 2018
We have received the following message from BAE Systems which may be of interest to the young people in Kent
We are excited to offer the members of Kent Scouts who are in the equivalent school year’s 10, 11 and 12 the opportunity to participate in the annual BAE Systems Engineering Taster Week.
Engineering Taster Week is an educational and enjoyable event intended to provide the attendees with experience of real world engineering. Attending students will embark on a challenging week-long project intended to develop their team working skills, leadership qualities and engineering expertise. We aim to provide an insight into the engineering that goes on locally, at the BAE Systems Rochester site, as well as providing valuable skills and experience that will serve the participants well in future applications and endeavours.
Engineering Taster Week 2018 will be the fourteenth consecutive event at Rochester. Over the years, this week has proven to be a resounding success. Due to overwhelming demand, we have recently increased the capacity of the event to run two weeks in succession. The 2018 Taster Week will run Monday to Friday, in the weeks of 02/07/2018 to the 06/07/2018 and 09/07/2018 to the 013/07/2018 from 9:00 to 16:30 each day.
Due to the limited number of places available and the popularity of the event, a formal application process will be used to select participants. If you have any interested members, they are encouraged to apply promptly as the event is offered to many in the area.
At this stage, the early careers team would like to bring this unique event to your attention as we believe it is a unique opportunity that some of your attendees will be interested in and we hope that as many local students have the opportunity to attend as possible. We would like to have the opportunity to send you information packs with brochures, posters and infographics to highlight the experience to the members of Kent Scouts.
Please let us know if Kent Scouts would like to be involved in highlighting Engineering Taster Week to your members this year. On confirmation, the team will be sending out information packs with advertising material that highlight the experience. The application window will be opening at the end of January.
If you have any questions or require any further information, please feel free to contact us. We look forward to hearing from you.
