Jackson's outreach work
goes international
Jackson's Engineering Manager Prince Sithole has given a virtual presentation to construction students at the Impact Mentoring Academy in Bermuda.
He was invited to speak by teacher Allanette Hayward (pictured with students), who had been impressed by our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) activities with young people - as showcased on social media.
Prince, who last year was named STEM Ambassador for the East of England by the Institution of Civil Engineers, spent 90 minutes talking to the 15-18 year olds about how their skills could be applied in the real world before taking a Q&A and discussing career aspirations.
Engagements
The presentation is the latest in a series on engagements undertaken by Jackson colleagues aimed at inspiring tomorrow's engineers and trades people. In the past twelve months, our trained volunteers have attended open evenings, apprenticeship days and careers fairs, as well as organise site visits and demonstrations for young people.

'There are many misconceptions about what civil engineers actually do but once students get an insight from qualified engineers they realise the relevance and importance of our sector'
