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.”
