Firmac is once again supporting Scarborough Engineering Week which will be held at the Spa, 13-15 September. The event, now in its 6th year aims to inspire school children in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects. Simon Morrell, General Manager explains why the event is an important date in the local business calendar. "There are many organisations in Scarborough and the surrounding area that rely heavily on engineers, and like the rest of the country, we are facing a severe skills shortage in this area. We are keen to encourage the next generation to consider a career in engineering in particular. Our apprentices spend 3 days at the event talking to the children, parents and teachers about what an engineering apprenticeship at Firmac is like."
Scarborough Engineering Week runs from 13-15 October. The event is open to the public on 13th October 4.30-7pm.
