Camden Clean Air is working with schools to organise and execute Sustainability Career Fairs as well as provide work experience opportunities to pupils.
We believe that the world of sustainability and Greentech is an emerging industry that is rapidly growing and can offer vast opportunity for the young people of today. For this reason, we want to assist Camden schools in making the connections to these businesses.
Firstly, we aim to inspire pupils to explore careers in this sector by demonstrating the excitement and importance that surround it, as it may be a sector they have never considered before. Secondly, we aim to educate pupils about the actual jobs that exist, and the vast range of skills that can be applied to these. They will learn about the type of work that is being done in this industry and why it is so important. Finally, we look to facilitate the engagement between the school and business. We will assist with the next steps associated with a careers day such as providing follow-up information around the opportunities available and how the pupils should begin to approach these.
We aim to replicate this model to as many schools in Camden as possible but will adapt each time to ensure we are meeting the school’s induvial needs. The above could take the form of a Career’s Day, a Career’s Evening, or a whole week of work experience. We aim to bridge the gap between schools and businesses to encourage the young people of Camden to engage with sustainability.
