Back to School for Vital Staff with Triple Outing

We love taking the opportunity to meet youngsters to discuss climate change, the work we do to combat it and the various career paths available in the green energy sector. November was a particularly busy month with our staff getting invited to three schools across England and Scotland to deliver climate education talks.

Our Project Director, Hugh Thompson and Proposals Manager, Gemma Dyson travelled to St John’s Primary School in Blackwood, Scotland to meet a group of 20 pupils aged 9-11 and talk about global warming and ways to join the future green workforce.

The pupils at St John’s were so polite and really engaged in the session. We talked about what they could do to help tackle climate change and they had loads of great ideas from sustainable fashion to vegetarianism. Lots of them have started already. If these pupils represent their generation, our future is in safe hands.

Richard Houghton returned to Bolton School, where he had previously studied, to address a lunchtime audience of years 10-13 and talk about careers in electrical engineering. Richard talked about studying for a degree, the importance of the right work placements and the work he does now with 3-D models, diagnosing problems and finding ways to solve them.

Our third visit involved Design Director, Operations North & Scotland, Lee Moran, who attended St Bede’s in Lytham, where he spoke at a careers provision event and discussed the wide variety of roles and pathways into the future green workforce.

We’d like to thank all the schools who made our staff feel so welcome and the students for their engagement and enthusiasm.
