The TAKE TECH project aimed at increasing awareness among young people on potential technical and scientific professions and careers paths. TAKE TECH targeted increased collaboration between education and industry through a process of systematic matchmaking that resulted, ultimately, in the provision of onsite company visits for many school pupils: during the pilot phase around 4000 pupils visited more than 150 companies. The TAKE TECH Handbook for Schools provides background to the project, in addition to a series of introductory texts, tools and templates for those embarking on this matchmaking process. Learning goals are confirmed alongside practical steps, particularly relevant to the preparation and delivery of in-company visits. Importantly, the Handbook provides a wealth of operational templates and worksheets that can be adapted for use by those responsible for the delivery of in-company visits in any setting.
