Working with Education

Our aim is to forge closer links between education and industry to empower young people to make informed choices about their future careers.

Many young people are unaware of the amazing career opportunities that are available to them in our region.

How can we help you?

  • We can help by providing information on how industry works, how its supply chain forms who is in that supply chain and how students can link with those companies to position themselves for future training/career opportunities.

How can we help your School?

  • Provide contextualised learning sessions in the classroom which encourages students to think about STEM related careers. The Mason Trust is committed to funding sessions each year which are delivered by various providers including Camouflaged Learning  and The Smallpeice Trust. If you are interested in holding one of these sessions at your school please apply by email detailing why you think your school would benefit from a session, which student groups you would offer them to together with any other relevant information. We will contact you to let you know if your request has been successful.
  • Provide industry experiences for students ie industry exhibitions and individual companies.
  • Bring industry speakers into your school/college to speak with students about the opportunities available within their sector.
  • If you think that The Mason Trust can help your school please contact us on info@themasontrust.org
  • Run icanbea… demonstrations, assemblies and workshops for your students.  What’s icanbea…?  Well…
