This festival will enable schools and other groups interested in manufacturing to see for themselves what it is like day to day working in the sector and find out more about the exciting career opportunities that exist in manufacturing in Leeds.
What will happen during the festival?
There are many ways to get involved as a manufacturer, including:
Going into a school and talking about your business and the sector
Opening your factory to host a factory tour(s) from a school
Opening your factory to your employees’ families
Opening your factory to your neighbours and local communities
What does it cost to take part?
All supporting materials and advice are free thanks to our sponsors
You only donate time and resource to plan and facilitate factory visits or visits to schools
After the event(s) we will ask you to provide us with details about the number of young people engaged with and the number of adults outside of manufacturing with which you have engaged
Hopefully it will cost you your anonymity – young people will know you exist!
Young people will know your business and opportunities that exist within it and be more inclined to work for you
