Business Partners

Skills Gap partner businesses provide an insight into the real world of design, engineering & manufacturing to support schools in enriching their Design and Technology teachers’ technical skills and knowledge.

Our Business Partners

Working with a local school, business partners are able to provide input which reflects current and emerging technological practices.  Employees share their knowledge and expertise directly with teachers and support them in passing these on to students.    They work with teachers to enhance their knowledge and support  the development of a specific school project, based on aspects of their industry, enabling staff and pupils to see how skills are applied in the workplace.  

You can read more about businesses supporting the pilot programme below.

We are building on our school and business partner base.  If you would like to find out more or register your interest to get involved, please Contact us.
