Industrial Cadets

Working with you to create opportunities for young people through Industrial Cadets


The Industrial Cadets flexible framework allows:

  • Young people to demonstrate experience and progression, empowering them to succeed in future study and make informed career choices.

  • Employers & partners to accredit existing activities, develop new ones and run alternative accredited programmes.

As a thought leader in STE(A)M education, EDT developed Industrial Cadets with support from industry to provide a benchmark accreditation mapping activities against a skills and competency framework.

EDT is committed to offering a learner pathway that encourages young people to have multiple, high quality interactions with businesses, through building successful partnerships with employers and educators across the UK.
