National College For High Speed Rail – Doncaster
iRail Challenge Day: 9th July 2019
9.00am – 3.30pm iRail STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) Challenge involving teams from schools from across Doncaster . In addition to the STEM challenge the day will include site visits and opportunity for the students to get hands on with some of the AR and VR training equipment at the National College for High Speed Rail (NCHSR). For the day to be a success we need employers to get involved to support the student teams – acting as mentors, helping to generate ideas and providing some ‘real world rail context’. Employers can sponsor the event by having a small stand and a presence on the day to help with the above, this also provides an opportunity for companies taking part to showcase their business to potential future recruits.
Teachers ‘Rail Careers Awareness Workshop’
Running alongside the main iRail event we will also be hosting a teacher’s rail industry awareness workshop. Teachers are key influencers of young people and are often the first source of careers advice. Our short workshop will help to educate teacher’s about the 21st century railway and the jobs and careers potentially available to their students.
