Meet an Engineer: online interviews

Primary Engineer & Secondary Engineer Leaders Award are re-launching the online interviews in September 2019 with lots of exciting engineers to meet. The aim of the engineer online interviews is so pupils get the chance to meet real life engineers in a virtual environment and discover the wide variety of disciplines engineering covers, this in turn gives pupils an insight into engineering opportunities and careers. This is a great way to inspire your pupils’ ideas for the Primary Engineer and Secondary Engineer competition ‘If you were an Engineer what would you do?®’  This year we are focusing on different themes such as space, sea, recycling, medicine, the environment and so much more. Facebook will be doing regular interviews throughout the competition this year.

How do we get involved in the online Interviews?

First off you need to have registered for the Primary Engineer and Secondary Engineer Leaders Award competition ‘if you were an engineer, what would you do?’ as the online interviews with engineers are a resource to help your projects for the competition. Then, once you have entered the competition, we will provide you with plenty of resources to help you out with your projects and one of these will be invites to the online interviews. We will be hosting our first interview on the 18th September after which we are aiming to hold two interviews a week until early 2020, so there are plenty of opportunities to be involved. Spaces are limited on the virtual interviews, so it will be on a first come first served basis. However, these interviews will be recorded, and you can be emailed a private link to access the interview if you were unable to be involved.

What happens in the online interviews?

The Leaders Award team will contact you regarding the online interviews we have on offer, you will need to register and then you will be provided a link where you can get access and join the online interview when it happens. You will then log into the virtual environment on the day of the online interview where you will be greeted by a Leaders Award team member who will make sure all the schools who have registered and the engineer who is presenting can hear and see.  The engineer will  provide a short introduction about themselves and a presentation about what they do as an engineer. Towards the end we give the opportunity for pupils to ask any questions they may have, along with any questions that have been provided prior to the interview. It is as easy as that and is a fabulous opportunity to get up close ‘virtually’ with a wide range of amazing engineers, so don’t miss out!

 

If you want to be involved in any of these interviews please register your interest via email to info@leadersaward.com
