Industrial Cadets

Build critical skills, celebrate achievements, and provide young people with the confidence to succeed


HRH  - 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"
