Is engineering the right career choice for your son or daughter?  Engineering is a vibrant part of London and the UK’s economy and provides an exciting range of careers for all abilities and all interests.  Much is being made of the need to "rebalance the economy" and the spotlight is firmly back on engineering and manufacturing and its importance to the future prosperity of the UK economy.  It's a great time to be learning a skill and developing a career in the manufacturing and engineering sector.

With great earning potential and new emerging technologies, this is a great time for your children to take advantage of the facilities, courses and our newly announced University Technical College (ELUtec) here at CEME.

Why Engineering?

The demand for engineering based jobs and careers is high but our local employers tell us there is a shortage of skilled labour and your son or daughter could make a real difference.

At CEME we offer a number of courses:

  • engineering
  • manufacturing
  • product design
  • motor vehicle

These courses have allowed our students to progress on to:

  • Further study within local schools and colleges

I am very excited at these new approaches to education and really feel that my Son would be an ideal candidate for this type of school. He has shown natural abilities in such subjects as Design Technology and IT and is at his happiest when taking things apart and trying to put them back together again!! I would love to think he could have an opportunity to work with his strengths in education to help him gain confidence and encourage him to be enthused about his future.
