Climate Schools Programme – Seeks Your Help
Engineering UK are running a brand-new pilot programme for schools, to help students explore solutions to tackling climate change. The scheme has been developed together with industry and inspires young people by showing role models working in green jobs. Through taking part, students will develop skills such as teamwork, problem solving and communication, and hopefully consider a green engineering career.
Engineering UK are currently developing content for this programme and are seeking help from Institute members who may be able to help contribute as part of the curriculum-linked resources. They want to make sure that young people see how engineering and technology can help with mitigation and adaptation, enabling them to feel positive about their futures and empowered to make a difference by working in these areas.
They are looking for role models that are working in energy or climate action related roles, who’d be interested to work with them to add the following types of content to the programme:
- Name, job title, and short description of what they do, and their route into engineering/technology.
- Quotes to inspire young people, in text, audio, or video format.
- Photos and/or videos of them at work, showcasing the things they do, and or things they think are important for a young person to know about.
Some examples of roles include: Wind Power Project Developer, Solar Power Designer, Nuclear Decommissioner, Hydrogen Research & Development, Heat Pump Technician.
If you are interested in getting involved, please email email@example.com and we can put you in touch with Engineering UK. For more information on the scheme, visit https://www.climateschoolsprogramme.org.uk/.
