Why is ensuring that children develop skills in Sustainability one of our Key Drivers?:
45% of 6th Form leavers attend Hull University, who have pledged a strong commitment to promote the inclusion of environmental and sustainability issues within the course programs and taught curriulum.
Hull has been intentified by the government as a 'Centre for Offshore Renewable Development'.
The Humber is leading the UK renewables sector with ove £700 000 000 invested through companies such as Siemens, ABP, Greenport, who are all leading advances in renewable energy, biomass, biofuel, and tidal technologies.
What it means:
We believe that giving children an understanding of sustainability and an understanding of how individual's actions can hurt the planet is a moral duty that all schools should carry. However, we believe that an understanding of sustainability is more essential in the local context.
Hull as a city has made a strong commitment to developing sustainable energy resources. As companies become more established, employment opportunities in the sustainable energy industry will become available.
Opportunies to study courses linked to sustainability will also be available and we aim to inspire children and give them their initial understanding of sustainability and how they can make a difference in their local community and to the sustainable energy cause.
