Headstart Programme

What is Headstart? 

Headstart is a charitable trust providing hands-on STEM activities and engineering taster courses to encourage young people into technology-based careers.  Taking place at some of the top universities, our courses are perfect for Year 12 students to find out about the exciting career opportunities a degree course might lead to.  Our broad-based engineering courses give a flavour of many engineering disciplines and our focus courses provide an insight into highly specialised fields.  You can find out more here.  Stay up to date by joining our Headstart EDT Facebook group and follow us on – Twitter @TheEDTUK

 

Y12 Charities talks

On 12 September we welcomed a number of volunteer charities into school to talk to our Year 12s about the benefits of volunteering and the opportunities on offer. Thank you to the Wellspring – a homeless charity, Cyril Flint – a befriending charity for older people, the Girl Guiding Association and the North West Air Ambulance. Hopefully their presentations have inspired Year 12 to help make a difference.
