Rye College is part of the East Sussex Careers Hub
We are very privileged to have recently been matched with General Dynamics. This promises to be an exciting partnership, with a particular focus on STEM.
We are delighted to introduce our Enterprise Adviser - Imogen Steer.
"Growing up in the local area and being alumni of Rye College, I am keen to provide support to the schools in East Sussex, particularly Rye College, to show the variety and diversity of careers available to young people. I am a champion of Careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths), being an engineer myself, and have been active in outreach to schools to raise awareness of the careers within those fields, and in wider business.
I am particularly keen to see more young women choosing a career in a STEM field, and like to think that I make a good role model, showing that engineering is not just for boys. Like many young people, my careers aspirations changed regularly, but I discovered engineering was for me during my Fashion designer phase. I ended up sewing and programming lights into all my creations, and realising that I loved doing it.
My degree in combined engineering at Coventry University opened a whole new world of careers to me, and my love of Aircraft and fast jets brought me to General Dynamics and back to Hastings".
