CEME's Gateway to Schools Engineering and STEM programme offers appetising opportunities to sponsor its 'Taster Days' in East London

The Gateway to Skills (GTS) programme provides a creative and inspiring 'Taster Day' for local secondary level schoolchildren in years 7 - 10 from the London boroughs of Newham, Havering and Barking & Dagenham (East Plus).

Its objectives are to

    Create greater awareness of STEM subjects in secondary school level students

    Stimulate students' interest in Engineering and STEM in a fun and interesting environment outside of school

    Enhance existing, and develop new, personal skills in Technology and Construction

    Provide awareness of Engineering career options and the scope of sector-wide application

    Help to increase the available number of future engineers in the local area.

The programme is run from dedicated facilities at CEME (Centre for Engineering & Manufacturing Excellence) that provide an integrated classroom and workshop environment that is tailored to theoretical and practical learning by schoolchildren.

The facilities also host a full IT suite of connected computers, allowing students to learn from proprietary and bespoke content. In addition, a variety of supplies of building and engineering materials such as Knex blocks, electronic circuitry, robotics and software form part of the programme resources and enable construction of structures and ideas that require the principles of design and engineering to be applied.

"Since 2006, the programme has delivered to well over 1,000 schoolchildren from the London East Plus areas and we plan to expand this geographic coverage in the future. GTS is designed to focus specifically on STEM subjects and to bring them alive in an interesting and fun way that will inspire schoolchildren to become more interested in these crucial subject areas.

"Unfortunately, many secondary level schools in the East Plus area suffer from a lack of funding to be able to create and deliver a similar STEM programme of their own. Consequently, they are often unable to gain access to the specialist equipment and teaching and denied the opportunity to educate and inspire their students in this way.

"The GTS programme steps in to fill that gap to provide that necessary and valuable opportunity for the local schools. This means that they can still receive interesting and high-quality, curriculum-based activity that supports their own teaching programmes without the need to find extra funding, as the programme is delivered free-of-charge to the participating schools who are located within the London Boroughs of Havering, Newham and Barking and Dagenham.

"The commercial sponsorship package is priced at 85,000. This provides for 1,000 student places that can be delivered over one or two academic years. The participating students would be currently from the London boroughs of Newham, Havering and Barking & Dagenham (East Plus).

"However, it is planned to expand that area to also include other London boroughs and south Essex schools whose location is close to the CEME campus".
