Working with schools
With the support of teachers in the counties of Bristol, Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire and South Wales, we want to find the engineers of tomorrow. They're students at our schools today.
Engaging students in engineering
The great engineers of tomorrow are students in our schools today. With the help of primary and secondary school teachers (and parents…) in Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire, Bristol and South Wales, we want to find them. This country needs more engineers. Renishaw needs more engineers!
Renishaw's Education Outreach programme offers local schools a range of activities designed to inspire young students to engage in engineering and consider it as a future career option. You never know, they might want to work at Renishaw one day.
Our comprehensive education outreach activities are completely free and aimed at Year 5 - 13. Our goal is to bring real-world context and added value to schools' science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) curricula.
The biggest private sector employer in Gloucestershire, Renishaw has more than 100 STEM ambassadors trained to deliver a host of free education outreach activities for schools. These include:
- Interactive, hands-on engineering workshops
- Work experience weeks - click here for more information
- Tours of Renishaw's engineering facilities
- Support for school STEM days
- Presentations on engineering topics at schools
- Support for careers events
