UK trade association, The British Plastics federation (BPF), in conjunction with Cogent Skills and
PlasticsEurope, is hoping a series of training seminars will help and encourage those in the polymer industry to bring new skills to the sector and encourage young people to base their future careers around it.
The BPF 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 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 polymer ambassador scheme, responding to statistics which show the UK requires more employees with science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) skills, which have become increasingly important across the plastics industry, aims to encourage industry professionals to inspire young children to pursue these educational pathways.
