The University of Chester
HESTEM project 'Employer Networks' is nearing the end of the first
phase. The video recordings highlighting careers in our Science
industries and the skills and qualifications preferred by employers
are in the process of being edited ready to be placed on the
U-Explore careers website and the University of
Chester websites. Included will also be an interactive display
of a technical laboratory showing equipment and testing procedures
as part of daily working activity.
The final stage of the
project will include three workshops during the summer term, to
provide opportunity for science teachers in local schools and
colleges to meet the people working in our science industries and
make links with local employers to encourage more young people to
consider a career in science. I will be sending out the dates for
these during April and would like to ask employers for their help
with these workshops.
I would like to say thank
you to all those who have taken time out of their busy schedule to
record the information for the young people in schools and
colleges. Individual recordings will be sent to each person who has
taken part and the completed careers information will also be
available to anyone who would like it.
