BAE Systems Early Careers Awareness Programme

BAE Systems are delivering a two-day teacher and technician 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: BAE Systems Portsmouth, The Airport, Portsmouth PO3 5PQ (11th March 2016

At the Portsmouth site, see how BAE Systems deliver end to end maritime services and support to over half of the UK Royal Navy's surface fleet. Our services range from warship availability, equipment and facilities management to training, product development and through life support for radar, torpedoes and small boats. A tour of the site will give you the opportunity to understand how BAE Systems apply engineering to ensure ships are ready for deployments and how we maintain infrastructure and equipment around the naval base. After lunch, you will be trained to use the brand new Royal Academy of Engineering resource, ‘Drones: friend or foe’, and be given a teacher resource pack for your school worth £80. We will finish the day by finding out further careers and STEM support that is available through BAE Systems and partner organisations.


Day two: National STEM Learning Centre, York, Y010 5DD (27 June 2016)

  • how can STEM skills make the difference to the students that need the most support?
  • what jobs will your students be doing in the future?
  • what skills will they need to succeed and get that first step on the career ladder?

This day conference 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.

This programme is for teachers and technicians from secondary and post-16 schools and colleges.
