Get Up To Speed 2017!

I was at 'Get Up To Speed 2017' today. GUTS is the annual Get Up To Speed event and was held again at the Magna Science Adventure Centre. GUTS is organised by Work-wise and has again broken all records with over 2000 visitors and a huge number of exhibitors and attractions.
This is the third year that this highly acclaimed careers event has been held in Rotherham at Magna Science Adventure Centre and exhibition just gets bigger and better 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.

Schools again 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 Cutlers' 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. There were some fantastic projects showcase by an amazing group of Cutlers' Y9 ambassadors... and the winning team came from Yewlands Academy supported by their teacher Andrew Sowerby!
