Primary Engineer is a national organisation that looks to inspire teachers and pupils with engineering. Teachers are offered training, links to local engineers and engineering companies all with the aim of inspiring the next generation and the generations after that with, and towards engineering.
We are working across the Burnley region linking Bondholders with local schools to help inspire pupils. Whilst primary is in the name we also deliver a Secondary Engineer programme to develop the transition into secondary Education, and a Leaders Award for STEM to help pupils understand more about careers.
Primary Engineer has also developed the first engineering institutions for children – the Institution of Primary Engineers and the Institution of Secondary Engineers.
Established in 2009, relocated to Burnley in 2014.
