The BPF, in conjunction with Cogent Skills & supported by PlasticsEurope, has launched its 2018 Autumn training seminars for the Polymer Ambassador Scheme (PAS), with training sessions to be held in Birmingham and London.
The Polymer Ambassador Scheme is an initiative to give polymer industry specialists the opportunity to teach children and students about the exciting world of polymers, engaging them in the possibilities of science, engineering and manufacturing.
This training seminar is in partnership with the Cogent SIP Ambassador Programme, which involves a network of industry professionals who engage, inspire and propel young people into careers within the science-based industries.
The UK requires more employees with science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) skills, increasingly important across many sectors including the plastics industry. The polymer ambassador scheme is one way that industry professionals can inspire young children to pursue these educational pathways.
