Loreto College

Yr11 Engineering Speed Meet

The Speed Meet is designed to support Year 11 students thinking about their A level choices after the summer GCSE exams.

The event will provide students with an opportunity to meet and speak to professional engineers from a diverse range of disciplines, to ask questions about the range of roles available, what each role entails, the qualifications required and some ideas of areas they might be interested in pursuing.

The evening will start with a short talk (10-15 mins) to hightlight the breadth of activities encompassed by engineering and will be followed by a 45 minute session when students will speak to engineers in small groups to ask careers related questions. After five minutes the groups rotate and student wil to speak to a different engineer.

At the end of the brief speed meet there will be a buffet to allow students and engineers to have more extended discussions about roles and careers.

We would ask students to arrive by 4.15pm for a 4.30pm start. The event should finish by 6.30pm.

Teachers are welcome to attend with their students, but we welcome students travelling independently.
