HS2 Designs Tomorrow’s Engineers Code of Practice to Build Next Generation Engineering Careers

October 16, 2020 / PBC Today

HS2 has signed up to the Tomorrow’s Engineers Code of Practice, which is designed to make engineering career opportunities for the next generation. HS2 has a well-established programme of curriculum-focused activity and has delivered over 50 STEM workshops in primary schools, through its Zoom Rail programme, engaging with nearly 2,000 7-11-year-olds. Secondary school pupils have also benefitted, with 110 STEM workshops delivered through its EPIC Engineers programme which is designed for 11-14-year-olds. HS2’s dedicated education team works closely with local authorities and education providers along the route of Britain’s new railway to ensure that young people are at the forefront of learning, training and employment opportunities. The team also provides support to businesses in HS2’s tier-one supply chain, whose contracts stipulate that they too must deliver STEM-focused education outputs within local communities.
