We were delighted to present our annual results for the Enjoyment to Employment programme at our 1st May Steering Group, where funders are given the unique opportunity to shape the future development of the programme.

Enjoyment to Employment, which has been running since 2016 and was launched by TfL Commissioner Mike Brown MVO, delivers the intentions of the 2018 Year of Engineering working to close the STEM skills gap London is currently facing.

In 2017/18 we directly reached over 53,000 children, young people and their key influencers through age appropriate activities which inspire the next step toward a career in the transport industry.

Highlights include:

  • Transporting 1,353 children and 1,310 children to a winter wonderland to learn about horse buses to the tune of Christmas Carols
  • Asking Key Stage 2 pupils to Mind the Gap! on a unique interactive adventure which challenges them to solve a mystery by exploring our collections at the Museum’s Depot in Acton
  • 230 STEM Ambassadors volunteering 850 hours of their time, expertise and enthusiasm to inspire and inform 11-14 year olds about engineering as a potential career with great prospects
  • Expanding the support we offer to young people coming out of the criminal justice system to find a fulfilling career in the transport industry

Join our current Enjoyment to Employment supporters: Siemens, Bombardier, Costain, Hitachi, telent and Transport for London to inspire the next generation of engineers.
