This week, we have held our Engineering Skills Passport Award Ceremony for our Year 11 students.
The aim of this award is to capture all of the skills the students develop that wouldn’t necessarily be captured in their formal GCSE / BTEC qualifications i.e. fitting, rivetting, reading orthographic drawings, using vernier caliper etc.
The award has been supported by Morgan Sindell Ltd, Shepley Engineering LTD, West Cumberland Engineering LTD, James Walker LTD, BAE, McMenon LTD, PPS electrical LTD.
The aim of this is so that when the students go for interview, be it for an apprenticeship, a university place or a job interview they will have a list of skills that will help them stand out from the crowd and make our students unique.
Mr Stevenson, DT and Engineering teacher said:
“The Design & Technology department at St Benedict’s Catholic High School would like to celebrate our Year 11 Engineering students receiving the first ever Engineering Skills Passports to be awarded at our school.”
“Once again we are blown away by our outstanding students and are incredibly proud of the way they represent the future of our community.”
All of the students listed below have received this award, as well as these three students who each received a special award for ‘Engineer of the Year’
