A 20-week programme where students are partnered with a company to complete a real life project, and gain an award to complement future career aspirations!
Industrial Cadets Gold involves teams of students working on a 20-week course partnered with industry to complete a real-life STEM project.
This helps students to develop their employability skills and graduate as Gold Level Industrial Cadets - a nationally-recognised award.
The programme is carefully structured and aligned to many Gatsby Benchmarks.
Teams interact with their very own mentor; a STEM role model, who provides guidance, support, and insight into industry.
Alongside industry support, the project offers higher education and careers sessions to increase awareness and understanding of future pathways and options available to students.
One of the most exciting elements of the course is a real experience of university through a residential workshop!
