We are pleased to welcome the Engineering Development Trust, as a new affiliate of Contracts IT.
EDT, The Engineering Development Trust, is an independent registered charity, established in 1984. Their mission is to encourage young people to fulfill their potential through science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM): we achieve this by running a range of programmes that give students from the age of 12 to 21 real-life exposure to industry, business and higher education. Each year we interact with nearly 30,000 students across the UK.
Headstart is a national programme which encourages young people interested in mathematics or science to consider technology-based careers.
It provides an opportunity for those in Year 12/S5/Lower 6th to spend up to a week at a UK university prior to making their UCAS application. The young people can make important degree and university choices based on real experience because they:
- participate in practical problem solving activities
- attend lectures and seminars
- visit local companies
- experience life as an undergraduate meet academics, post graduates and young professionals
