Lessons learnt from Covid-19
Drax has been a Corporate Member of EngineeringUK for over 2 years and was the first Signatory of The Tomorrow’s Engineers Code from the energy sector.
We asked Jane Breach who has been involved in the development of the Drax virtual work experience programme to tell us how they changed its delivery from face-to-face to virtual because of Covid-19. As well has finding out about how Drax works with EngineeringUK across its outreach programmes.
How Drax adapted its work experience programme during Covid-19
Driving innovation in the industry is not only about re-skilling the current workforce, but also about equipping the future generation to have the skills required for the green jobs of the future.
Drax wanted to develop a programme that could be delivered remotely during the Pandemic and provide a valuable and authentic experience.
Delivering the future skills needed
“We are so grateful to EngineeringUK for the wealth of expertise and advice they provided us with when putting our virtual work experience programme, allowing us to develop an engaging and beneficial experience for young people”
