Education Outreach Training

Education Outreach Training

At the Institution of Mechanical Engineers education and skills is a policy priority. Education outreach is crucial to inform and inspire young people, as well as enable our members to build their skillset, local networks and a talent pipeline for their own businesses. The IMechE actively encourages its engineers to get involved in STEM outreach and supports them with free training, educational resources and guidance.

The IMechE is providing education outreach training to its members and is delighted to offer nine free training sessions in 2023. The training calendar has been coordinated by Jelena Gacesa, Education Outreach & Safeguarding Lead and will be delivered by Alexandra Knight who will be joined by education specialists and representatives from the IMechE’s network of Regional Education Officers.

Each training session covers a different topic and will include a mix of presentation and discussion, as well as hands on practical activities. The CPD trainings provide the opportunity for members to engage and learn from each other, as well as develop their skillset.

Seven of the nine training sessions will run online via 1-hour live Zoom webinars for the first 100 IMechE members that register. Each session will be recorded and made available on demand thereafter.

We will also host two all-day in person workshops for up to 50 STEM Ambassadors on a first come- first served basis! The workshops will take place in London and Manchester and lunch, refreshments and all of the resources will be provided.

The training is open to all members at all levels of experience and is not exclusive to STEM Ambassadors.

The IMechE Safeguarding Policy, STEM at Home, Impact Evaluation Form and STEM Toolkit webpages will be referred to throughout the trainings and all STEM Ambassadors encouraged to use these valuable resources.
