Go4Set

By linking teams of six Year 8/9 or S2 pupils with companies and universities, the Go4SET scheme empowers young people to make informed decisions about their Key Stage 4/Standard Grade options, with particular regard to science, engineering and technology (SET).

Go4SET offers a ten week experience with the aim being to raise awareness and highlight future career opportunities in SET subjects. Work related learning within an industrial enterprise context is at the core of the Go4SET scheme.

During 2010, NNL provided mentoring for Go4SET students from William Hulme Grammar School in Manchester. Students were given a choice of SET project topics and chose 'Energy' and its usage in their school.

The team produced assessments and surveys of energy usage from around the school. As part of the scheme, the team renovated an old greenhouse on the roof of the school science building to enable them to produce fruit and vegetables for use in the school canteen.
