Here at the Essex Education and Industry STEM Programme, we love hearing from students that have come along in the past to our key sector taster events or been part of our yearly projects and, now that they're in year 10, are looking to continue to develop their interest in careers in key local industry sectors by sourcing a relevant work experience placement with some of our amazing Essex firms. Over the last two weeks, we've been contacted by students S, C and K who are working hard to secure something for March 2019 and asked if we could help to spread the word. We're delighted to help out and, at the same time, highlight how our fantastic Essex students are benefiting from the E&I STEM Programme, in terms of bolstering their already impressive CV's! If you think your organisation can help out these brilliant students, get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org!
