They can have hands-on experience of rapid prototyping, vacuum casting, 3D routing, laser cutting, CNC machining.

We offer a BTEC in engineering for Years 10 and 11. Students attend half a day a week.

Students studying GCSE graphic products benefit from taking their graphics and creating prototypes and getting their designs ready for production.

We also offer single day and half-day experiences that are engineering, science or maths-based – short programmes as part of schools’ stretching programmes, enrichment and also re-engagement.

“The pupils have really enjoyed working with Nexus staff on projects both in school and at the Nexus base. The engineering after school club and projects within the school time have given the children a real insight into the breadth of engineering. They have appreciated working with both the excellent resources and the specialist staff.”
