It is my pleasure to invite you to attend the special event that the EDT (“Engineering Development Trust”) are hosting as part of our “Engineering Education Scheme” Celebration & Assessment Day on 25th April 2014. With the skills shortage within the engineering sector only growing EDT are proud to showcase some of the regions brightest talent..you never know your next employees could be among them.

This is also an excellent networking opportunity giving you the chance to meet other senior managers from some of the area’s top local companies and organisations. You will also have the opportunity to find out about the EDT and our various programmes including the Engineering Education Scheme (EES).

For 29 years, the EES programme has provided teams of Yr 12 students with the opportunity to work alongside local businesses to solve real engineering, or scientific, problems. The six-month projects culminate in a Celebration and Assessment Day that showcases the work which the students have completed. This year, we have 22 teams of students, mentored by 16 companies, attending the Celebration & Assessment Day in Hatfield on 25th April.

The students will have been assessed in the morning so from 1.45 onwards, we will be pleased to welcome you and other guests to view the exhibition stands. The teams will be manning their stands until 3.00pm after which they will be attending the formal presentation of their certificates and Guest Speaker.

Please email me at g.ide@etrust.org.uk to confirm attendance and further details, including directions, will be forwarded nearer the day.

I hope that you are able to join us, if not, please feel free to send a colleague in your place.

Also, it will be 30th years of EES next academic year, the scheme was launched in Herts by HCC. Gordon Mizner who is the CEO of EDT will be attending and would very much like to meet you to talk about next year’s celebration.

Yours sincerely
