Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851

EDT would like to thank the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 for funding the development and pilot of a new Industrial Cadets Silver-Level experience: “Fast-Track to Industry."

This pioneering new project was designed to enable young people to keep building on the skills and knowledge they need to make the most of their post -16 experiences, and continue making confident choices for the future.

The course enabled 30 young people from disadvantaged and under-represented backgrounds to explore different routes into STEM, including University, Graduate and Apprenticeship pathways​.

Four exciting days were hosted by the University of Westminster, Imperial College London, Bechtel Energy and HOCHTIEF-MURPHY Joint Venture (HMJV). Participants took part in hands on activities to explore STEM careers and learned about the career opportunities available by studying STEM​, setting them up to make well informed decisions when choosing their next steps in life.  ​

Post-course, 86% of young people felt more confident that they were on-track to achieve their career and study goals: a massive increase from 40% pre-course.

Thank you to the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 for making this life-changing experience possible for young people.
