Engineers get set

9th May 1997 at 01:00
The Science Engineering Technology and Mathematics Network (SETNET), to be launched on May 22, aims to encourage young people to focus on engineering-related subjects as a key part of the curriculum. Its organisers hope pupils will go on to study such subjects at university and consider a career in engineering.

Up to 30 regional SETPOINTS will act as "one-stop shops", providing information for teachers, business and industry. They will also encourage joint events and projects between industry and education, highlight gaps and duplication in provision of information, organise seminars and meetings to disseminate good practice, and publicise success stories from teachers and students.

SETNET chief executive Dr Ray Peacock says: "Teachers can look on SETPOINTS as centres of excellence, through which they can gain access to other professionals and receive sound advice on the suitability of products. This way business and industry are more likely to see a take-up of schemes and resources."

SETNET is funded by the Government and engineering industry.
