About This Webinar

Are you an A Level or university STEM student? After the success of Student Circuit’s first webinar at the end of last year, it will be hosting a second on 22nd February 2022 from 5pm. It is the perfect opportunity to make industry connections and join a conversation about skills within the engineering industry to ensure you are as employable as possible.

The webinar will feature a keynote from Sarah Peers, Head of NMITE’s Academic Skills Centre who will begin by introducing her background and what NMITE stands for. Sarah will then focus on the necessary skills that its employer partners within the industry are looking for, opening the conversation up to a panel of startups.

The panel, hosted by Startups Magazine’s Editor, Anna Flockett, will then discuss their startup journey’s, provide students with an insight into the industry, and any advice to engineers.

So far, the confirmed panellists are Nuria Manuel, CEO and Founder of Veriom, Alice Lieutier, Head of Coaching at Makers and Lara Bogatu, Data Scientist at Peak.
