MerseySTEM AstraZeneca Apprenticeships Evening: A STEM Success!
We’d like to say a HUGE thank you to AstraZeneca for working with us on their FIRST Parent and Student Open Evening. It was an inspiring night for all with so many young minds excited about the amazing Apprenticeships!
As part of the Government’s National Apprenticeship Week AstraZeneca Liverpool invited local enthusiastic talent to an open evening to find out more about its work and the apprenticeships on offer.
Supported by MerseySTEM, an organisation which builds relationships across the Liverpool City Region between schools, businesses, industry, colleges and universities, the global pharmaceutical company introduced a range of apprenticeships for those interested in careers in science, engineering, manufacturing, and supply chain management.
On the evening of the 9th of March potential apprentices and their parents spoke to AstraZeneca employees and took part in demonstrations showing the kind of work the Speke based manufacturing centre does.
Senior Site Director, Mike Austin says, “We work hard to bring life changing medicines to the patients who need them. To be successful we need people with the right skills and motivation. We are introducing our first apprenticeship scheme because we know that, given the opportunity, our young local people can be our stars of the future.”
The open evening was open to all young people who are interested in careers based around Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM).
AstraZeneca are headline sponsors of The Big Bang North West 2015.
