‘Skills for Tomorrow’ at the University of Worcester
On Friday 5th June, fifteen of our High Attaining students from Years 7 and 8 participated in ‘Skills for Tomorrow’ at the University of Worcester. It was a fantastic day, opened by Robin Walker, Conservative MP for Worcester and Mark Martin, Business Development Director of the Green Skywalk Project. The day focused on issues such as: responsible energy usage, ethical food production, sustainable construction processes and environmental stewardship. Our students participated in various interactive workshops, led by members of the university community. Each workshop featured challenges centred on real life examples, where our students were required to apply their own knowledge and understanding. Furthermore, our students were given the opportunity to visit an informative exhibition, which was hosted by leaders of ‘green’ companies who voiced their vision for a sustainable future. Our students also had the chance to speak to a number of professionals about the many different career opportunities linked to sustainability.
