The North East LEP, Schools North East and Gatsby Charitable Foundation are working together on a pilot, funded by Gatsby that has launched in the North East called Good Career Guidance benchmarks.
Gatsby is a foundation set up by David Sainsbury to realise his charitable objectives and a significant part of Gatsby’s work focusses on the technician workforce; promotion, registration, vocational pathways etc. The aim is to raise greater awareness of the importance of the technician workforce and the diversity of their roles.
Gatsby is hoping to visit a range of employers to meet with them and their technicians and gather a pool of case studies, with the possibility of showcasing these employers and individuals as exemplars of talent and innovation in their field. This would initially involve taking some photographs and potentially filming a short video if agreeable.
They would like to showcase technicians job in a variety of areas including but not limited to; architecture, construction, textiles, IT, broadcasting, pharmaceuticals and farming.
If you would be interested in being involved in the above, please contact Michelle Rainbow at the North East LEP – [email protected]
