1st Networking Breakfast of 2022 to welcome STEMPOINT East’s Dr Alex Perry and Felixstowe School’s Xavier Norte

Our first Networking Breakfast of 2022 is being held at the View Point Café on Thursday 26th May 2022 from 7am to 8:30/9:00am.

Our speaker at the event is Dr Alex Perry, STEM Engagement Coordinator for Norfolk and Suffolk at STEMPOINT East. Alongside Alex, we will also have Xavier Norte, Assistant Headteacher and Head of Sixth Form at Felixstowe School.

Alex says:

“My talk will be about the work of STEMPOINT East and the range of ways that STEM Ambassadors can make a difference to the education and lives of young people.

“The STEM Ambassador Scheme enables companies to demonstrate corporate social responsibility, build good community relationships, and address the skills gap.”

There are many benefits to becoming a STEM Ambassador, generating good publicity and good community relations for your business. With the STEM Ambassador scheme, you can encourage pupils to consider a career in your field and address the skills gap, with direct access to teachers to help to shape the education system to meet your needs. Grants are also available to help your business (free money!).

Xavier Norte of Felixstowe School will also be available to discuss the advantages of work experience pupils and finding the ‘cream of the crop’ from the next generation.

Tickets include a cooked breakfast and a hot drink (vegan and vegetarian options are also available, but will need to be pre-booked).
