GUTS 2016!

I was at GUTS 2016 today. GUTS is the annual Get Up To Speed event and was held again at the Magna Science Adventure Centre. GUTS was organised by Work-wise and has broken all records with over 2000 visitors, exhibitors and attractions.
This is the second year that this highly acclaimed careers event has been held in Rotherham at Magna Science Adventure Centre and the venue proved to be a perfect fit and showed once again that the Sheffield City Region still has an exceptionally successful engineering and manufacturing base, built from a heritage spanning hundreds of years. Sponsor Mick Hood, HR Director for Tata Steel said “Tata Steel has supported Get up to Speed ever since its inception and continue to see its importance in raising awareness among young people, teachers and parents of the exciting opportunities on offer by choosing an engineering or science-based career.”
Schools again this year took part in the 'Made in Sheffield' Innovation Competition, which is judged at GUTS and is part of efforts to attract and prepare young people for apprenticeship opportunities. The innovation competition sees local companies buddying with local schools, presenting them with a real business challenge or opportunity, which they work on together and present their work to a panel of judges from the business community.

This year’s winner was Firth Park Academy.

And the individual winner came from Outwood Academy City.
Brilliant stuff!
