'BACK TO THE FUTURE' WITH THE CUTLERS' ENGINEERING AMBASSADORS
I was at Magna in Rotherham this afternoon with the Cutlers' 'Better Learners, Better Workers' Year 9 engineering ambassadors from Bradfield School, Handsworth Grange Sports College, Firth Park Academy, Outwood Academy City, Stocksbridge High School, Westfield School and Yewlands Academy.
The ambassadors had a tour of Magna and the opportunity to talk to engineering employers during the morning before working in mixed school groups to research and develop a performance looking back at the history of the Cutlers' Company, the history of steel making in Sheffield and then looking at the future. The day ended with the Master Cutler presenting the ambassadors with their Cutlers' Badges before the students performed for an invited audience of parents, carers and families and guests.
