Education Outreach, Redefined

Merging Curriculum Knowledge with Tech Skills, Human Skills, Mentoring, and Careers Insights

Industry Is Evolving, Education Isn’t.

Most organisations in the UK struggle to find workers with the right skills and, as a result, spend extra on salaries, recruitment, early stage training, and temporary staffing.

The skills gap is costing UK employers £6.3 billion yearly.

We believe this is an opportunity to connect education with industry and bring students and teachers together with industry professionals around exciting challenges that link the curriculum with real world skills and careers.

The What

Intro 2 [Industry] is a series of industry specific physical and virtual bootcamps through which companies can engage with secondary schools, connect with students, and inspire career choices.

Each bootcamp is built around an industry-relevant challenge, where students meet the professionals and work in teams to build skills, solve problems, and create technology.

1. Discovery

Sponsorship starts with a conversation about your work and exciting projects within your sector, with a focus on skill needs and your local communities

2. Project

We convert this knowledge into educational projects that involve making trade-offs, designing and creating things, and solving problems.

3. Bootcamp

We organise all the logistics of coordinating and managing venues, stakeholders, and equipment. Schools come for free and you will be invited to mentor, inspire, and connect with students.

4. Curriculum

To increase the scale and long-term impact of sponsorship, projects are mapped to relevant STEAM subjects and delivered to teachers via 3DUCATE.

Anatomy of a Bootcamp

Regardless of industry and project, the underlying structure is the same

Challenge

The challenge gives the industry context in a relevant way and sets the goal for the bootcamp. Whether it’s designing and programming the best autonomous vehicle, or creating an app to manage the customer experience in a train station, the challenge will engage students and introduce them to the real world.

Tech Skills & Knowledge

Each project is carefully developed to provide students with a holistic learning experience that spans designing (CAD) and programming (Python, C++, physical computing), as well as curriculum knowledge from STEAM subjects.

Human Skills

As in the real world, projects are team-based and require effective collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and time management for successful completion. Bootcamps culminate with a pitch contest.

Mentoring & Career Talks

A range of industry professionals volunteer to mentor student teams and to give brief talks about their career journeys and the future of the sector.

Facilitators

Bootcamps are delivered and facilitated by our expert team and with support from our growing network of university students interested in the sector.
