Yesterday, I spent the afternoon at Newburgh Engineering where colleagues from the company were delivering the latest element of the Cutlers' "Made in Sheffield" Ambassadors programme. 

The ambassadors were told the history of Newburgh Engineering and then colleagues told their individual stories of their journeys from apprenticeship to management. Each one stressed the importance of the Cutlers' skill set: character, core skills and higher level skills particularly emphasising communication, literacy, numeracy, planning and organising, critical thinking, problem solving and team work. The ambassadors were given a challenge where they worked in school teams to design and build a bridge to carry a load. The teams worked well and after a lot of hard work the bridges were all successful and were also tested to their limit!
