FutureGoals launches Spotlight campaign: an interactive resource bank to showcase the creative sector

students the programme is based around the production of a festival. Spotlight can bust a few myths around careers in the creative sector and provide a wider understanding of the less well-known, yet in demand roles. Students will need to use their English,Maths and Science skills and knowledge to tackle every aspect of the planning and running of a festival. Through the various tasks, quizzes, group activities and discussion topics, students will become aware that there is more to the creative sector than the well-known design-based roles.

Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership and Burberry have teamed up to launch the latest FutureGoals teaching resources helping the region’s young people learn how theirMaths, English and Science skills are used in the creative industry.

Created in collaboration with local businesses, schools and with the help of

Following major creative icons such as Channel 4 and Burberry settling into Leeds City Region as their Head Quarters, the creative industry is now the region’s fastest growing sector providing incredible job opportunities to local people. There are currently over 30,000 people working in the creative sector in Leeds City Region with that number predicted to increase. The new Spotlight campaign, aimed at students from years 7 to 11 includes a series of interactive and engaging resources, all designed to give students a taste of what it would be like to work in the creative sector. Spotlight has been developed as part of the LEP’s wider careers campaign, FutureGoals which provides inspiration to help people of all ages feel inspired and informed about careers in Leeds City Region.

A group of second year electronic engineering students have

embarked on a challenge to design and launch a satellite designed to fit in a standard sized can and will represent NewVIc at the annual CanSat competition with The European Space Agency (ESA). They will go head to head with other teams at the national competitions taking place in Cambridge for UK contestants, more than 1000 students will participate in this from all over Europe. After national competitions the next steps is a place in the European launch campaign in June 2020. This year is the 10th edition of the European CanSat Competition.

The European CanSat Competition is an ESA Education project that promotes STEMliteracy amongst young European students through project-based learning. A CanSat is a simulation of a real satellite, integrated within the volume and shape of a soft drink can. Team Aero's challenge is to fit all the major subsystems of a satellite inside this minimal volume, launched by a small rocket up to an altitude of 1 km. As the
