Chris Sargisson, Chief Executive of Norfolk Chamber is part of a group of businesses who will be talking STEM at the University Technical College’s ‘Get ahead’ event on Thursday 19 April. 

The event is free to attend and will be a great opportunity for students and parents to understand what opportunities are available when considering a technical career.  You can meet local industry experts; a chance to talk to current apprentices about their experiences; and the various exhibits will include a DAF truck, racing motorcycle and go kart, 3D VR, modelling software.

Other speakers include James Shaw from the RAF, Sue Falch-Lovesay from Vattenfall and Richard Bridgeman from Warren Services.

Commenting on the importance of these type of events and encouraging students to consider STEM subjects, Chris Sargisson said:

“Norfolk Chamber is urging businesses to step forward and inspire the next generation of talent by supporting events such as ‘Get Ahead’.   Young people need to be aware of all the opportunities open to them within the county.  By being passionate about this, we will stop seeing the migration of students, who qualify and move away.  We can retain our brightest stars in the sorts of roles where their skills are desperately needed.”

The event is being held on Thursday 19 April from 4pm – 7pm at the University Technical College, Norwich.  To find out more and to book your place click here
