Peterborough, UK


October 20, 2022

NEP employee Jonny Gate visited Thomas Deacon Academy in Peterborough to deliver a STEM presentation to their KS4/KS5students as part of the STEM Ambassadors Programme. Within his presentation, Jonny discussed career opportunities using STEM subjects within the Broadcast and Media industries, as the students considered their options as they took their next steps in their careers.


The purpose of the STEM Ambassadors Programme is to inspire students to choose a career path in STEM related roles. Jonny delivered a presentation focussed on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) roles within NEP, and what roles are available in the Broadcast and Media Industries.


The presentation outlined career options for students once they finish secondary school, offering various routes through ALevels and Colleges courses and the career paths that can be undertaken after university related or otherwise.


Jonny enjoys inspiring students and encouraging young people to choose a career path in the Broadcast and Media industries, often signing himself up to multiple events throughout the year. Asa Guarantee Broadcast Engineer for NEP, he can offer advice from his own experiences at work and offer insights into roles available in the industry. 


"It was good to enable the engagement with students about the wide range of careers we can offer at NEP and more broadly in STEM. It also helped with linking the classroom to the real-world, allowing students to understand how their everyday learning can be applied to real life jobs and workplaces." 


Encouraging students to join the Broadcast and Media industries and take on STEM roles is something important to all at NEP. NEP Connect also headed to a school in Milton Keynes for a STEM talk. Samantha Harrison and Marley Forrester visited Hazeley Academy to deliver a presentation looking at what specifically NEP Connect had to offer in STEM career roles. 


Preparing students to become innovative and critical thinkers begins with STEM education programs in the modern education curriculum. Summer camps, after school programs and makerspaces provide opportunities to take traditional learning model of a textbooks, a desk and a classroom and pivot it to prioritize the hands-on experience and real-world application necessary for developing a creative mind capable of problem solving.
