Torin-Sifan is passionate about encouraging young people into engineering working with the Engineering Development Trust (EDT) and local schools and colleges to involve young people in engineering ‘from the ground up’. Our Technical Director, Martin Page helps to achieve this through lectures and talks to schools and colleges.
Torin-Sifan is also heavily involved in the EDT and enters the Go4Set initiative with local schools each year. Go4Set aims to encourage young people into engineering and involves the company sponsoring and mentoring a school. Go4SET links teams of six Year 8/9 (England) and S2 (Scotland) pupils with employers and universities to offer a 10 week Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Project. The subsequent project is then judged by the EDT. Torin-Sifan has entered the last four years and has won a prize three out of four years.
Immersing young people in engineering is key to igniting a passion for the subject. Torin-Sifan is therefore involved in the Year in Industry programme through the EDT which organises the paid placements of pre-university students during their gap year before or during their degree. At Torin-Sifan this involves the company bringing the students into its engineering department, here they work alongside electronics and mechanical engineers in the engineering lab experiencing the discipline.
