Tata Steel celebrates graduation of first-ever Tata Steel Cadets

of the Tata Steel Industrial Cadet scheme, launched in September following
HRH The Prince of Wales' visit to the Teesside steelworks last year.
The Prince had encouraged the company to work with young people to
increase their awareness of how a business operates and inspire them
to consider a career in the industry.
After seeing the enthusiastic reaction of the 13- and 14-year-olds
taking part in the weekly, three-hour sessions, Jon Bolton, director
of Tata Steel's long products business, is determined to see the eight-week
"This is only the start," said Mr Bolton. "It is not
just about the steel industry. This is something I'd like to see rolled

companies can offer is second to none.
"It is vital that we equip young people with the right advice
so they can make an informed choice about their futures.
"As you would imagine not many of them had much of an idea about
what goes on behind the doors of a major industrial operation. This
region continues to have a strong manufacturing base and it is essential
that we plan for the future."
The cadets earned a place on the scheme following a formal selection
