STEM expert and business coach Offering 21st Century Skills Workshops

A STEM expert and business coach will host a series of workshops to develop the technical and problem-solving skills of those working in the STEM industries in North East Lincolnshire and coastal regions.

Dr Jo Mason, is a skills expert in the areas of science, technology, engineering and maths. She will lead the new 21st Century Skills Workshops taking place in Skegness on 24th March and in Grimsby on 25th March 2020. They are funded by Ørsted UK’s East Coast Community Fund and delivered in collaboration with the University of Lincoln.

The workshops aim to enhance participants’ confidence, ambition and critical thinking, and will expand on the existing skill-set of employees seeking career progression into more technical roles – and businesses can now sign up.

Delegates will take part in a series of interactive activities, such as an engineering-focussed Escape Room, and building a wind-powered car. They will leave the workshop with a University of Lincoln “Skills Passport”, highlighting their individual skills and signposting career development opportunities. They will also be able to access follow-up coaching sessions from Dr Mason.

Eleanor Ramsey, the University of Lincoln’s Educational Partnerships Manager, said: “These events are designed to support delegates in developing their skills and knowledge within a safe and engaging learning environment. We hope that participants will leave the sessions feeling both inspired and empowered.”

The East Coast Community Fund was set up by wind-power giant Ørsted UK to support community and environmental projects along the Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and North Norfolk coast. The programme will be delivered by the University of Lincoln’s Educational Partnerships Team.

Organisations or individuals in the region who wish to take part can do so by getting in touch with the University of Lincoln’s Educational Contracts team, via enterprise@lincoln.ac.uk or calling 01552 837200.
