To celebrate International Women’s Day, Babcock at Clyde partnered with DYW West to welcome 6 female students from two local high schools to HMNB Clyde to provide an insight into the opportunities available as a female working within the STEM industry. The visit included a tour of the site and facilities, and career talks from women in Babcock, the MOD and Royal Navy, who discussed their career experiences and provided advice to young people starting out in their career journey. We hope the visit encouraged the students to pursue a career within the STEM industry.
Thanks to Babcock at Clyde for engaging with DYW West and hosting our local young people from Vale of Leven Academy and Our Lady and Saint Patrick’s High School. Our joint partnership’s aim of the day was to inspire young women to pursue careers in STEM related industries. The site tour, demonstrations and inspirational talks from successful women within STEM was extremely beneficial to the pupils, who are now expressing an interest within this area, with some now applying for apprenticeships at Babcock.
