Yorkshire Water welcomes Industrial Cadets

Yorkshire Water welcomed 26 Industrial Cadets for a week-long practical look at how the water industry works.

Students from around the county got to spend time at various Yorkshire Water sites to see first-hand how the water goes from the reservoir to our taps.

They were also given a project on water conservation which they had to present back at the end of the week.

The students received a nationally recognised Silver level Industrial Cadets award, which they can use when applying for jobs or for further education.

Yorkshire Water Education Manager, Anne Reed, said: “We were delighted to see 26 students from 24 high schools & colleges completing our first Industrial Cadets week. 

“The programme of activities has achieved far more than just introducing students to STEM careers -  widening participation in work experience, developing confidence and unlocking aspiration in respect of future careers.”
