Industrial Cadets

Proud to have HRH The Prince of Wales as Patron of Industrial Cadets

Unlocking young people's potential through Industrial Cadets


HRH The Prince of Wales - Patron of Industrial Cadets

"It is hugely encouraging, that so many young people have become Industrial Cadets. It's clear to me that the rapid pace of change in the way that our industry is operating is bringing a host of new challenges and opportunities, not only in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, but also of course in the creative arts"

In collaboration and partnership with educators, employers and partners, EDT are transforming the way young people can access experiences and earn their Industrial Cadets awards. Employers can use the Industrial Cadets accreditation as a quality benchmark for outreach and education programmes and to build pathways through education to employment.

Through Industrial Cadets accredited experiences, students gain insight and exposure to STEM and the world of work, helping to open their eyes to exciting careers and opportunities. Connecting young people with industry and role models helps them ‘see themselves’ in STEM, to make informed choices about their future whilst developing the skills needed to enter industry with confidence.
