Event description

Description

Why don’t more young people consider working in engineering as career? In 20 years’ time we are going to need 1.82m engineers in the UK. We want you as young people aged 14-19 years old to get involved in the conversation and offer your perspective on how we change this and get more young people into engineering.

The WorldSkills UK - Engineering Youth Summit will bring together a diverse range of young people (aged 14 -19 years old) together, to hear from speakers that are already making real change in engineering, participate in a series of creative workshops and meet with likeminded young professionals - culminating in ideas being pitched to influential figures working in engineering.

10:00 am – Welcome

10:30 am – Guest Speaker

10:45 – 11:30 am - Shaping the debate. Why don’t young people go into engineering careers? We will have to two teams arguing for and against this point.

11:30 – 11:45 am – Break

11:45 am – 12:30 pm - So the time is now….Problem solving on a deadline! Teams will work in groups, using an accelerated approach to problem solving, you will work together to develop solutions to the issues facing young people in getting into the engineering industry.

12:30 – 1:15pm - Lunch

1:15 – 2:00 pm - Creating new solutions. Using as a foundation the solutions generated in the earlier sessions, you will use this session to refine these ideas into 120 second pitches – which will be honed before they are delivered to panel of key representatives from the engineering industry.

2:00 – 2:45 - The Pitch. Delegates will then deliver their 120 second pitches to a panel of engineering industry representatives.
