A big thank you to Ollie from Pitlane Development who delivered a remote session with a group of year 9-11 students. The talk was informative and students had the opportunity to ask questions. Students looked at the qualifications required to get into Engineering. They looked at websites and places they can utilise and apply for jobs once qualified. Students were given tips and advice on making the most of the resources available to them.
As a year 11 student trying to find out what i would like to pursue as a career in the possible future we were given the opportunity to have a virtual session with a company called pitlane development.
Through this session we learned the different routes you could take to get into the motorsport industry, what qualifications you need and the different types of engineers and mechanics every motorsport team is made up of.
Personally overall the session was interesting but very useful. Getting to hear from someone who has had years experience in the industry really helped me understand what skills you need for job roles like this as well as the various different routes to getting into the sport – Cassandra K
