Go Ahead Training recently took part in...
At Go Ahead Training we work with schools and employers to develop and introduce a range of interactive programmes which are designed to engage, inform and challenge students while helping to develop the attitudes, skills and knowledge required by employers.
All programmes will challenge and inspire, they will provide opportunities for students to develop practical, technical and life skills within a structured environment.
The primary school is the where a child first acquires initial knowledge and skills in a diversity of areas. At the same time the child also develops basic and enduring habits, concepts and attitudes to everything studied, to the teaching itself and learning as a process of individual intellectual activity.
Our Future Engineers – Secondary Programme allows for a natural progression from our Future Engineers – Primary Programme. It gives students the opportunity to have a much more in depth look at robotics and provides a fantastic blend of educational and technology skills delivered in a fun-filled package for Students aged 12-18.
Against a backdrop of economic recession, high youth unemployment and a sustained reduction in public funding, the task of supporting young people to make effective post-16 transitions into further education or employment is highly challenging.
The Opportunities (Employability) Programme is designed to help young people make a successful transition into employment. The programme provides the opportunity to gain work experience and an employability qualification.
Making the transition from school into the workplace is a real challenge for most young adults. This course is designed to help young people move in to sustainable employment.
This course aims to help young people understand money. Where it comes from, how they earn it and the skills they need to budget for the things they want in life.
Jaguar Primary School Challenge (F1-JPSC) engages with primary schools students and teachers across the UK in the same way as the Secondary School Challenge. Open to students aged 5-11 years old, it involves designing and manufacturing the fastest car possible.
Offering a way to learn Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) related subjects in such an exciting way is achieving great results and we know we are increasing the intake of students into Engineering careers.
A range of interactive programmes are set in “Enterprise City”, a multiuse facility which can be changed and amended to cater for a range of themes or sector focused activities by changing signage, backdrops and activities.
Inspiring us all
I would like to thank you, Mike Nelson and the rest of your team from Go Ahead for facilitating an inspiring summer school activity. The VEX robotics tasks engaged and enthused all of the students participating and has given a great insight into the endless possibilities for our STEM clubs this year. Feedback about the event was very positive and I am extremely grateful for inspiring us all.
I would like to thank you for the training Stephen received yesterday. The robot looks amazing and we are excited to start the project with our pupils.
Our mission is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, future engineers, by engaging them in a new technology world that builds science, engineering and technology skills, that inspires innovation, and that fosters skills for life and future employment including self-confidence, communication and teamwork.
