A unique programme is being launched to link every secondary school in Suffolk with the energy industry.

Professionals working in the sector and interested in supporting and inspiring young people are being encouraged to give up a small amount of time to share their knowledge and passion for the sector and act as an energy ambassador for their local school. Skills For Energy (SfE), Suffolk Education Business Partnership (EBP) and Suffolk County Council are jointly developing the Suffolk Energy Ambassadors will assist with careers talks, provide information about energy jobs, support energy related projects and help teaching staff inspire their pupils about the future career opportunities in the sector.

Celia Anderson, Executive Director looking after Skills for Energy (SfE) said: “We see this programme as the ideal way to capture some of the passion and enthusiasm held by people already in the industry to excite and encourage young people to consider working in the energy industry as career option. It isn’t only about looking for engineers as we will need a broad range of skills both technical and commercial to sustain and build local companies.” Judy Terry, cabinet member for skills at Suffolk County Council, said; “With this new programme we hope to excite and motivate young people about the great career opportunities that are currently available in the energy sector.”
