It’s been just over a year since McBains embarked on its partnership with Hopwood Hall College & University Centre to sponsor their award-winning ‘Design Engineer Construct!’ (DEC) learning programme, created by Class of Your Own.
DEC arms young people with knowledge and transferable skills for a career in a digital, sustainable and collaborative Built Environment, enabling them to understand the way that data and information is captured, used and shared through a range of systems, processes and advanced technologies.
Integrating science, technology, engineering and maths with art and creativity, and with a clear focus on numeracy and literacy skills, the DEC programme has gained a reputation as "the most innovative, challenging and relevant secondary school curriculum development in recent years".
Our 3-year sponsorship will allow us to get to know the students, supporting them in their development and career progression, as well as identifying those with a real passion and desire to progress in the DEC programme, potentially leading to apprenticeships within the business.
A summary of our first year as sponsors is provided below:
