Workshop

SeeMe Workshop

Siemens are offering free careers workshops to 10 schools in England in June.

SeeMe Workshop
Rosette

The SeeMe workshop is a classroom-based careers workshop to help guide Year 10 and 11 students through decisions about their future career and open their eyes up to new industries they may not have thought of before.

Delivered by DBS-checked and trained presenters, the 45-60min workshop looks at how to go about deciding what career may be for your pupils, and then concentrates on more engineering-based careers, showing these jobs as a viable option for ALL, no matter their gender, background or interests.

For an example of the type of content, please check out the online version here.

What will the day look like?

Depending on the size of your school, Siemens would deliver the session to 6 different classes throughout 1 day. Each session can be between 45-60min long, to fit in with your timetable. There would be 2 presenters and so 2 workshops could run in parallel.

A teacher will need to be present alongside the presenter in the classroom during the workshop, and they will need to complete a short teachers’ questionnaire after the event.

Cost

Free to 10 different schools in England throughout May/June 2022.
