Since 2012, organisations have come together with the aspiration of inspiring young people (ages 7 to 21 years) from diverse backgrounds into pursuing STEM (Science Technology Engineering & Maths) based careers all at the Your Future, Your Ambition (YFYA) event.
Now in its 6th year this event provides younger age groups (7-16 years) with exciting and inspiring activities, whilst providing the older age groups (17+ years) with access to blue chip organisations through key workshops and exposure designed to provide the key tools top companies are looking for in respect to STEM based careers.
De La Rue is proud to sponsor this event and looks forward to seeing all the students at Emirates Stadium, London on the 5th October 2017. The event willl be opened by Heather Melville MBE, Royal Bank of Scotland.
De La Rue will be showcasing all our products, and the jobs and processes that go along with making banknotes, passports, identity systems, tax stamps and brand authentication solutions.

Each year the event aims to attract more companies in order to connect with more schools and students. This will create a stronger and more binding link between education and industry.
The theme of the event is “You Are Your Future” in order to attract, excite and inspire those attending in that
what lies ahead are fantastic careers in STEM based industries. The format of the event will follow the highly
successful approach in previous years of Activities, Exposure and Experiences provided by key companies
and specialist organisations.
