Date(s)/Time October 8, 201910:30 - 18:00 Location Kings Cross Station Contact Details Rail Week firstname.lastname@example.org Category(ies) No Categories Description Objective of event: There is a perception problem about what young people think about engineering. This perception problem has not helped keep Network Rail’s pipeline of talent filled which is a concern across industry. So, we want to start challenging this perception and get people, and in particular those who can influence young people, interested in finding out there is more to engineering, and Network Rail than they may have thought. The aim of this event is to: Increase the desirability of engineering as a career by increasing awareness and understanding amongst parents and influencers – anyone in the child’s life with influence, family, careers advisors/teachers etc of children to recognise engineering as a great career choice for their children. By challenging current perceptions of a career in engineering.
