Update from City & Guilds training event
20th June 2016, Stevenage, UK
Steven Devine gives us a glimpse of what he's been up to recently.
At the end of May I attended a City & Guilds networking event at their London office. A number of lecturers, heads of departments and other personnel from relevant training bodies attended.
As part of the event I delivered a short presentation to introduce the Student’s Guide to the IET Wiring Regulations as well as to provide some information on other activities we are rolling out, such as the Student’s Guide series of videos that are available on IET.TV, the Student’s Hub and, of course, the Student’s Guide Roadshow, where we will be visiting colleges and training bodies around the country. Details of the Roadshow will be coming to the Student’s Hub soon.
The Student’s Guide has been very well received and we’re grateful for the support and positive feedback we’ve been getting. I’m passionate about supporting tomorrow’s electricians and am always looking for further ways to be involved. It is fantastic to be involved with young people who are embarking upon their careers. Please email me if you’d like more information about the work I’m doing, or if you have ideas as to where we can participate. If you’re a lecturer and want to know more about the Roadshow, I’d be happy to supply you with details. Perhaps we can visit your college, bringing with us industry speakers, freebies and prizes!
We’ll be continuing to update the Student’s Hub and am pleased that we’ll be delivering a feature spread of articles in the Autumn issue of Wiring Matters (out in September) specifically for students. The feature will include ‘how-to’ articles, such as ‘how to write a CV’, as well as interviews from various employers in industry showcasing a wide variety of opportunities for our young electricians.
Please do keep your eye on the Student’s Hub and please encourage your students to subscribe to Wiring Matters so that they can continue to get the support from the IET.
