Severfield staff and apprentices have been promoting careers in structural steelwork at Scarborough Engineering Week.
Aimed at young people between the ages of 4-19 years, Scarborough Engineering Week welcomes approximately 2,000 students and places a firm focus on young people taking control of their future and promotes careers available in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.
Taking full advantage of the opportunity to engage with youngsters, Severfield demonstrated just how exciting working within the UK’s market-leading structural steel company can be.
Apprentices from Severfield at Sherburn assisted with manning the Severfield stand, providing valuable guidance and advice to students in relation to how apprenticeships work, on the job training (learning whilst earning) and the benefits of starting their careers at Severfield.
Exhibitor stands were interactive; Severfield in conjunction with Lincoln Electric, provided a Virtual Welder for the event. This proved highly popular, along with touch screen monitors with BAM Models of recent projects.
The below feedback was received from Scalby School:
‘The students thoroughly enjoyed learning about the different aspects and careers for engineering with either taking part or interacting with staff from the various companies, colleges and universities involved. This was an excellent opportunity for students to discover different career paths available to them and the vast diversity that is encompassed by engineering.’
