Year 6 pupils from Ormsgill Nursery and Primary School enjoyed a factory tour of Oxley Group at the start of their Green Careers Project which is part of the Future of Furness: Exploring STEM Careers Programme.

They visited the Ulverston-based aerospace and lighting systems specialist, which is their business partner, to discuss ideas to shape a project based on an issue that is important to them and the local environment.

The overall project is led by FESP (Furness Education Skills Partnership) and focuses on future jobs in the renewable energy and net-zero sectors.

The pupils from Ormsgill enjoyed an insight into the work at Oxley from CEO Darren Cavan before being set a challenge to consider the impact of plastic pollution and to undertake a project to reduce plastic bottle waste using the reduce – reuse – recycle model. 

Jayne Moorby Head of Marketing at Oxley Group said: “We are delighted to be paired with Ormsgill school, during their project introduction visit to Oxley we were inspired by the group’s enthusiasm and creativity.

Projects like this enable us to work with young people to develop communication and problem-solving skills whilst also opening their eyes to the huge array of future opportunities available with local employers, we’re excited to work together to see how their project progresses.
