Worley is the latest company to join the unique alliance of organisations supporting ENTHUSE Partnerships, providing much-needed support for schools across the UK.
With a heritage spanning more than 60 years, Worley delivers projects, provides expertise in engineering, procurement and construction and offers a wide range of consulting and advisory services. From creating new assets to sustaining and enhancing operating assets, in the hydrocarbons, mining, mineral, metals, chemicals, power and infrastructure sectors, Worley covers the full lifecycle of project delivery.
Worley also takes a full lifecycle approach to learning. To help actualize the 2030 timetable of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the 2050 aim of the Paris Climate Agreement, Worley is supporting the development of the next generation of future engineers, designers and creative thinkers through science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) partnerships around the globe.
“As part of the ENTHUSE Partnership, Worley is excited to support young people on their journey exploring the STEM industries. This is a fantastic opportunity to work with young people and their teachers to inspire the next generation of future leaders to dream big." - Lucy Brooksbank, Worley Senior Vice President
Worley’s participation in the ENTHUSE Partnership is led by St. Anne’s RC High School in Stockport. Other schools involved in the partnership include Whitehill Primary, Heaton Norris, St. Winifred’s RC Primary, Heaton Mersey, St. Mary’s RC Primary, Levenshulme, All Saints Primary, Heaton Norris and St. Joseph’s RC Primary, Reddish.
The aim of the partnership is to enthuse and inspire students in science, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds, leading to positive views of science careers and encouraging them to study science to a higher level. The schools will work closely with STEM Ambassadors from Worley to ensure students and teachers know about science-related roles within industry and to raise aspirations in STEM.
Participating schools will benefit from all the opportunities STEM Learning has to offer through its ENTHUSE Partnerships, including STEM-specific professional development for their teachers, working with Worley STEM Ambassadors, building STEM Clubs, taking part in the teacher work experience programme with Worley and guided access to STEM Learning’s expansive collection of resources.
STEM Learning’s ENTHUSE Partnerships enable more young people, from all backgrounds, to progress in their STEM education, with more students entering high-value STEM-related careers as a result. By doing so, STEM Learning improves social mobility and the life chances of some of the UK’s most vulnerable young people.
Formal evaluation has shown that ENTHUSE Partnerships have significant benefits for teachers and young people, improving STEM teaching and teacher retention and increasing young people’s interest and attainment in STEM, as well as awareness of STEM careers.
