At The Worthgate School we are always in pursuit of providing forward thinking education, that considers our ever growing and changing world. We aim to set our students up to be an influential part of that world.
Friday 23rd June marks the 9th anniversary of International Women in Engineering Day. It is a day dedicated to celebrating the fantastic female engineers who have shaped the world we live in, while also bringing awareness to the barriers women in engineering face. It encourages young women with a passion for STEM subjects to pursue a career in them.
International Women in Engineering Day got us thinking about how to uplift the voices of the young women who will help create the future of engineering.
We chatted with two young women who are currently sitting their A-Levels at The Worthgate School, with the goal of specialising in an engineering field at University.

Whilst female voices are still massively underrepresented within engineering, we are marching steadily towards progress. Education opens pathways to innovation and at The Worthgate School we set our students up to be pioneers of industry and journey out into the world and make a change.
