EDT (Engineering Development Trust), offer young people active learning experiences in STE(A)M related careers, giving them the opportunity to gain knowledge and exposure that will help them make decisions about their future.
Our aim is to increase interest in STE(A)M careers (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) through a variety of engaging and dynamic programmes for ages 9-21 that replicate experiences found in the workplace. Some examples include industry mentored projects, school activity days, specialised taster courses and industrial placements. All these programs work to develop students’ teamwork, problem solving, communication, digital skills, numeracy and project management - increasing the confidence and employability of young people.
