K Home International attended Nunthorpe Academy Engineering Careers Evening on Tuesday 10th November. The company was represented by Ian Kemble, Principal Engineer - Instruments, Leo Geddes, Civil and Structural Engineer, Marc Brocklesby, Instrument Designer, Loukas Lowe, Civil Undergraduate and Michael Young, Apprentice.Parents and pupils had the chance to discuss face to face, the possibilities a career in engineering can offer.The aim of the evening was to inspire pupils that engineering is innovative, inspirational and has diverse impacts on humanity. The focus was to inform pupils that engineering is more than 'just' a vocational subject.The event was carried out for Year 9 students who are currently deciding their GCSE option choices and Year 11 students who are considering their next steps of progression of education either via Sixth Form studies, apprenticeships or colleges."We were delighted to be involved in an event that gave young people the chance to meet directly with all kinds of engineers and get a better understanding of the diversity of our industry and how it touches all our lives. This is especially relevant for a company like K Home, where the various engineering disciplines come together as a team to complete a single project." Said Ian Kemble"The pupils and parents we met showed great interest and asked a lot of very relevant questions. It was good that we had people present who had come into engineering through various routes, some as apprentices and others as graduates, to give the benefit of their experience. I hope that we have done our bit to inspire a new generation of engineers." added Ian.
