Energy4me Schools Career Guidance

The Energy4me Schools Career Guidance (SCG) committee aim to “Inspire the Next Generation” by providing Diverse & Inclusive information on “Energy Transition” skills, career pathways and career journeys thus guiding pupils towards positive destinations.

In collaboration with other SPE Aberdeen Committees and our STEM Ambassador Volunteers, we also support leading energy sector players and STEM Educators to provide an industry focus for primary and secondary school pupils, teachers, parents and carers, therefore, raising awareness of potential Career opportunities in the Oil, Gas and wider Energy Sector including Offshore Wind, Electrification, Geothermal, Hydrogen etc as part of our journey to Net-Zero. As “Explorers”, through our collaboration with NASA and the UK Space Sector, we also highlight transferable technologies and skills in Satellites, Robotics, Data, AI, AR, Emissions Reductions, Sustainability etc.
