Visit to Advanced Technology Innovation Centre
As part of our ongoing careers programme in school, De Lisle College is being supported by an Enterprise Adviser who is working with us to support students to engage more closely with the world of local industry. As part of the scheme students met local employers based at the Advanced Technology Innovation Centre which is located on the Loughborough University Science and Enterprise Park.
Students visiting the Innovation Centre had the opportunity to find out more about wide range of knowledge-based companies and research-led organisations that operate here alongside each other.
The format of this event included students being given the chance to network with employers as part of a coffee morning. They then gained an insight into the local labour market, and toured some of the facilities whilst hearing about the work carried out there.
We hope to follow this up with further visits in the future.
