Tomorrow's Engineers Programme
The Tomorrow's Engineers programme, led by the engineering community, provides a platform for employers to work effectively with schools to inspire more young people to consider a career in engineering. We need more engineers. For that we need more young people to understand how what they learn at school is used in the real world. Giving young people the chance to talk directly to engineers and engage in hands-on activities that showcase and contextualise engineering is at the heart of the Tomorrow's Engineers approach.
Toolkit: SEND Competition activity
Competition activity is a great way to raise aspirations, improve learners’ skills and employment prospects, strengthen learning programmes and introduce an element of excitement into the vocational curriculum. While competition activity is relatively well-established as a feature of the curriculum at higher levels, it is less commonly used with learners at Entry level and Level 1. However, providers who have been exploring the use of competition with learners with SEND report that it is just as beneficial for their learners – and easy to implement.
This toolkit provides you with a range of resources that will help you to embed competition activity into your curriculum in a way that enthuses both staff and learners. It also gives you some tips on getting employers involved. The toolkit includes:
an overarching guidebook
an introductory video
sample competition briefs and marking schemes
competition brief and marking scheme templates
learner self-assessment and personal planning templates
an invitation letter for employers template.
