Our Race Bank team welcomed to site a group of year 9 and year 10 pupils from the John Whitgift Academy in Grimsby. The pupils spent a day getting to grips with the transferable skills you need in the workplace, learning about offshore wind and hearing from different team members about the route they took to working in the industry. After the visit, the Race Bank team offered two pupils from the group a two-week summer placement to gain invaluable experience of the workplace.
"Most surprising was how much work goes into building the wind farms – all the commissioning and planning. The work experience made me think differently about my future because I thought more about going into an engineering route or a computing route than I did before. Having that work experience will help me because I’ll have more confidence in the workplace."
