"On Wednesday 7th March 2018 Jayson Hunt & myself made our way to London after receiving an invitation to attend
the UK Industrial Cadets Awards 2018 at the very prestigious Institute of Engineering and Technology Savoy Place, London.
Jayson received the invite after attending the fantastic work experience opportunity with TATA Consultancy Services, Digital Explorers Week in November 2017. Jayson attended the Birmingham event as TATA Consultancy held similar events across London also. Jayson attended two of the five days at the Birmingham event & won the overall prize of a Amazon Fire Tablet voted the student that impressed the facilitators the most. MyKindaFuture are the chosen company by TATA Consultancy part of the global TATA group to deliver the work experience programme.
TATA Consultancy were one of the companies nominated for Employer of the Year. This award is the premier award for employers who have demonstrated outstanding engagement with young people illustrating best practice in employer engagement on the work experience STEM agenda. Other companies also in the Employer of the Year category were, Airbus, RAF & Yamazaki Mazak.
The event was attended by many dignitaries Sanjevv Gupata , Stephen Metcalfe MP & my favorite Johnny Ball however the headline speaker was HRH The Prince of Wales.
It was an amazing day & Jayson represented Northern House School, Solihull really well a lot of the speakers & other dignitaries commented on his ability to speak about his TATA work experience with such enthusiasm.
The pictures give a idea of the day but the experience is one I'm sure will stay with Jayson for ever.
Well done Jayson." - Mr Ellis
