"Newham PRUs have been working in collaboration with The Beckton Skills Centre for two academic years. This partnership has provided our Key Stage 4 students with the opportunity to partake in a vocational learning programme and work towards achieving a Level 1 Award in Motor Vehicle Maintenance. Students are able to work alongside industry professionals, gain new skills and knowledge, and also develop an interest and curiosity for learning about careers within the Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) sector. Our students are thoroughly enjoying this new experimental and applied way of learning, which is also helping to engage and motivate them into making informed decisions about their future career aspirations and pathways.
