Teachers can play a vital role in shaping young children’s views about careers. This seminar will discuss how providers of initial teacher education can support students training to become primary teachers to design learning experiences that enthuse young children about engineering. The Centre for Real-World Learning (CRL) and the Institute for Education, both at the University of Winchester, will present findings from their latest report for the Academy on engineering habits of mind (EHoM). 

The event will be facilitated by Professor Bill Lucas, Director of CRL. It will include presentations from members of the Institue of Education and participants will be invited to suggest how recommendations from the report might be taken forward. Copies of the report will be available. The seminar will conclude with lunch. 


This event is by invitation only and registration is required. For more information, please contact Tom Gunter , Education Policy Advisor, Royal Academy of Engineering.
