EAST YORKSHIRE: Teachers from Hull, East Riding and Teesside schools are being sought to become wind energy champions.
As Forewind, developer of the Dogger Bank zone, launches the next stage of its innovative education initiative Champions for Wind, schools are being encouraged to nominate staff for the role.
Ten teachers will be awarded bursaries to develop and implement wind energy careers- related activities for their students as part of the initiative, which is being run by Hull’s Humberside Engineering Training Association.
Champions for Wind began late in 2011 with the recruitment of ten teachers from Hull and East Riding as wind energy champions.
In mid-2012, a further ten teachers were selected in Teesside.
Applications are now open for the third cohort of teachers from across the areas, to express their interest in taking part.
More than 2,000 students to date have been involved with the programme and this latest phase will mean up to 1,000 more young people will have the opportunity to learn about offshore wind energy and the wide range of careers offered by the industry.
