Mark Rutherford and Leonardo

Bedford’s Mark Rutherford School is partnering with Leonardo, one of the largest employers of engineering apprentices and graduates in the UK, to support education and skills development in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.

Headteacher Mr Millard said “Leonardo is committed to maintaining a skilled and diverse workforce and recognises the need to expand the UK’s pool of engineering resources. As a school, we are focused on encouraging students into technology and engineering careers, actively supporting initiatives to encourage greater participation amongst young people in STEM curricula”.”

Sam Ashworth, Leonardo Campaign Support Manager said “Being a partner school will give Mark Rutherford students many more opportunities to gain an insight into engineering; this could include special lessons which focus on engineering, as well as assemblies and careers fairs”.
