Through the school we are contributing to a fundamental shift in the provision of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) education in London moving it into the digital age and addressing at root the lack of Black, Asian & Minority Ethic (BAME) people, along with gender representation in the engineering industry. Through the school we are recruiting diverse apprentices and graduates, equipped with the digital, engineering and project skills that the employer led curriculum will provide.

"Working in collaboration with our customers, supporting them to transform their business service and performance, and changing the way we do business, requires new approaches and new skills. We’re therefore delighted, as a key part of our overall skills approach, to be associated with the London Design and Engineering UTC, which aims to raise the educational bar and develop the skills needed to meet the construction and engineering opportunities available to us."

Alex Vaughan, Costain’s managing director for natural resources.

In addition to financial support we have provided opportunities for our STEM ambassadors to volunteer, developing lesson plans, projects, site visits and work experience. We are very pleased to be sponsoring the Pure Maths A-level, to support the school with a subject which will greatly benefit the students. This is being delivered outside of school hours and despite this, is fully subscribed.
