Working With Education Network
The Electrotechnical Skills Partnership (TESP) is working with partners to look at flexible ways for experienced people to share their knowledge and expertise with school students, electrical trainees and apprentices. Spending time with apprentices and trainees gives you the chance to give something back and, if you’re retired or wanting to take a back seat in your business, allows you to keep in touch with the industry. There are also opportunities to help with industry and careers awareness, and employability skills. Sounds interesting? Visit the TESP website to find out how you could get involved.
