What others are saying

“I get the chance to stay at some of the UK’s best universities and use resources that would normally be out of reach. The opportunity to work with some of the brightest students and see their enthusiasm is a great reward and for these reasons I would definitely recommend supervising on a Smallpeice Trust course.”

Andrew Jones, Hugh Baird College

“I have just completed my 6th year of supervising for Smallpeice and am once again stunned by the depth and range of skills available to the students on the courses and the professional way with which they are dealt. I find it very easy to promote these courses to my students as I can actually share the enthusiasm and excitement that I feel when I attend. It creates an environment where I can learn new ideas too and witness some of the engineers of the future!”
