We believe in supporting young people to fulfil their potential and in inspiring and exposing them to the world of work at Sirius. We continue to deliver our extensive education outreach programme throughout the Project area.
Our strategy has evolved since we started working with local schools and colleges in 2012.
The aim of the programme is to increase the skills and aspirations of young people in the Project area and has three main strands:
We have worked with over seventy schools and engaged 8,000 young people over the last four years. People from across the Sirius team have been encouraged to participate, particularly younger team members, to talk to students about their role at Sirius Minerals and how they got involved.
The Company is proud to have been the headline sponsor of Scarborough Engineering Week for the sixth consecutive year.
In addition to the activities and opportunities delivered directly by Sirius, we are also funding a £1 million programme in Tees Valley and North Yorkshire to support the STEM curriculum and promote STEM careers.
