Testimonials from 2020 Cohort

It is reassuring to know that it's fine to try things out and have a go, and not be scared to move on. My mentor encouraged me to look for alternative routes, and I have been offered my own degree apprenticeship.

Mentee, 18, North East England

The boot camps were so fun, because we got to hear people talk about their jobs with enthusiasm.

Mentee, 16, North East England

I didn't expect my confidence to grow much, but it did and I'm more comfortable with myself and my science skills.

Mentee, 16, North East England

I thought my mentor was incredible and she’s really inspired me to pursue a career in engineering, she’s opened my eyes to a world of possibilities and I now have the confidence to explore them.

Mentee, 16, North East England

I was able to start building a network with some of the women who gave masterclasses and also my peers who were taking part in the programme.

A note for Parents, Guardians and Teachers

 
We take the safety of our community and young people very seriously. This programme will ensure safety and safeguarding throughout - via the use of training, DBS checks and a locked secure online platform. Our safeguarding policy is available online. We want our young people to be safe at all times, so this programme will be heavily supervised by our team.

We also take inclusion very seriously, so will be providing the necessary materials for any young people who do not have regular access to a device connected to the internet. We want all sorts of young people to be able to build careers in STEM, no matter the resources they have at home.
