• BAE Systems Early Careers Awareness Programme. This is a two-day teacher and technician CPD programme that combines an awe-inspiring hands-on day at a local BAE Systems site, free resources from the Royal Academy of Engineering and a follow-up conference three months later at the National STEM Learning Centre. Day one will take place on 11th March 2016 at BAE Systems Portsmouth, The Airport, Portsmouth PO3 5PQ. It will include a tour of the site, training on how to use the brand new Royal Academy of Engineering resource, 'Drones: friend or foe" and an opportunity find out about further careers and STE support available through BAE Systems and other partner organisations. Day two will take place on 27th June 2016 at the National STEM Learning Centre, York, YO10 5DD and will give participants a hands on experience of the recruitment process used for apprentices and graduates and help develop strategies to help better prepare students for life after the classroom.
