Our employer partners periodically host visits to their workplaces by groups of students, who get a chance to meet employees and ask questions. Volunteers and students then get to work on a challenge that gives a flavour of what the organisation does.
Green Schools Project supports forward thinking schools across the UK to get students to lead whole school projects that improve their local and wider environment. The programme enables students to build skills, helps the school to save money and develops sustainability-minded young citizens. They would like to be able to assess how our programme supports students to develop their skills in areas such as leadership and communication. As an organisation they are committed to empowering young people to be able to take action towards tackling climate breakdown. These skills are vital in allowing them to do so.
