He delivered an assembly to students in years 10 and 11 about the Rolls Royce competition and the work that Rolls-Royce do. Neil also spent time with the 6th form students talking about career paths into the engineering industry. He explained the advantages of apprentice schemes and the university routes into Rolls-Royce. Later in the day the year 8 students had a chance to build a model jet engine and learned the importance of teamwork, listening skills, problem solving and understanding instructions. The staff also spent time with Neil to explore the project, the prizes available and the route to the awards.
