Our sister project Triton Knoll has published full teaching pack to support teachers who want to teach their students about the diversity of careers and jobs associated with offshore wind. The materials are aimed at Key Stage 3 – but can be adapted to a wider age range (12-18). They can be delivered as individual lessons or as an enrichment day.
Champions for Wind
RWE, through the Forewind consortium, placed a significant focus on raising skills awareness during the early development of Sofia Offshore Wind Farm. Between 2012 and 2015, the Champions for Wind schools programme gave hundreds of 12 to 14 year olds a taste of the career opportunities, qualifications and experience required in offshore wind. The programme involved 30 teachers from 30 schools, including at least 15 from the North East. They developed teaching resources incorporating offshore wind into their respective curriculums. Some of those resources can be found here.
In this section we will collate resources that may be helpful for people who are looking for a career in the offshore wind sector. There are numerous different routes to careers and these links provide some hints and guidance.
Check out our sister project - Triton Knoll's careers case studies for interviews with team members about their routes into offshore wind that will hopefully inspire those considering a career in the sector.
