Future Engineers Encouraged by ERIKS

July 2017

Earlier this month, we were proud to support Business in the Community's Passport to Employment Programme at schools local to ERIKS UK & Ireland Head Office in Halesowen.

Together with other large employers in the Midlands Region (JLR and Lloyds Bank were amongst some of the well-known names) the programme allowed us to work with Y9 children to help:

  • Increase their awareness of job opportunities in Advanced Manufacturing and in the local area
  • Them identify the skills and qualities needed for those jobs
  • Them think about the skills and qualities they already have
  • Them understand the different career pathways available to them after they leave school

Colleagues who attended shared details of their job within ERIKS, but also their career paths and the skills/experience they gained from their first job to present day. They helped the students with activities that showed them examples of team work and recognising skills they already had that could be useful within the world of work.

As you can imagine, at 14 years of age, many of the students were totally unaware of the career paths they wished to take, but the activities allowed them to understand the types of qualities and skills they could work on now to aid their future successes.
