GFG Foundation has launched a new programme at LIBERTY Steel’s Rotherham plant which gives students the chance to develop green industrial skills.
Students on the 16-week programme pilot will be mentored by LIBERTY Steel employees at Rotherham in collaboration with partners Engineering Development Trust.
The programme is focused on sustainability and helps students navigate the expanding green jobs market.
In addition to developing STEM skills, students will also build on their communication and presentation skills, receiving an industry-accredited Industrial Cadet Award.
Manager of the GFG Foundation Claire Neilson said: “We are delighted to bring this excellent opportunity to students in Rotherham. Investing in future generations is crucial to a sustainable future. There is great benefit to young people building real-life experiences to navigate the ever changing and evolving industrial world. Five employees from LIBERTY Steel’s Rotherham site are involved as workplace mentors, demonstrating their passion for helping young people and their commitment to supporting the local community. We are excited to see the programme launch in Rotherham.”
Project work is designed to benefit the local community and students in Years 9 and 10 from two local Rotherham schools, Wath Academy and St Bernard’s Catholic High School, have been set the task of designing ‘A Renewable Rotherham’.
