Join Cygnet Texkimp on Wednesday 15th February 2023 to discover careers within STEM at a UK manufacturing company.

We invite Year 9+ students from the Northwich, Cheshire area to join us at our Innovation Centre and go behind the scenes of an export-led British manufacturer.

In 2021 the UK engineering sector employed 6.9 million people, with 36% of those employed within the manufacturing industry. Despite these stats, the UK engineering sector is facing a skills shortage. A lack of available skills means 49% of businesses within this sector face these difficulties.

To help address this problem, it’s vital that UK engineering businesses promote careers within STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). Particularly beneficial to students, a STEM career can provide further opportunities prior to picking GCSE’s.

Therefore, Cygnet Texkimp invite local Year 9 students to visit our Innovation Centre on Wednesday 15th February 2023.
