SETA will be attending careers conventions at a number of schools this week to talk to students about what modern engineering really looks like and the various routes into a career in engineering.
On Thursday afternoon at Urmston Grammar, Manchester SETA will be giving 4 talks to year 9, 10 ,11 and lower sixth form about Engineering in Manchester and how engineers help our everyday life.
The presentation will also include a short talk and questions with a 2ND year electrical design apprentice: Sarah Chadwick of Jacobs Engineering, a multinational engineering design company.

- Callum Hall (Railway Engineering),
- Joe Stennings (Aircraft Services),
- Max Evans (Engineering Design),
- Arsalan Ahmed (Aircraft Services)
- Nick Pritchard (Plant Maintenance)
- Ryan Swift ( Electrical Maintenance)
The range and type of companies and the different roles that these apprentices will be trained and employed in shows the diversity of engineering and career opportunities that the sector can offer school and college leavers.
The apprentices will do practical, theoretical and work based engineeering training to develop them as Tomorrow’s Engineers.
