Group seeks to raise awareness of STEM careers
UK: The Institute of Refrigeration has created a new Linkedin group to raise awareness and promote careers in cooling.
The Linkedin group is open to all place to share tips and opportunities to engage with young people and promote the RACHP sector and careers. It is also hoped that it will also become a forum for companies able to offer work placements and recruiting apprentices.
Commenting on the launch of the Linkedin group, said: “I’m delighted to see the launch of the new RACHP STEM – Raising Awareness of Careers in Cooling LinkedIn page.
“This is fantastic opportunity for us to not only share resources for careers talks and STEM activities but also for us to share our own journeys and stories with our colleagues and peers,” said IOR education committee member Lisa-Jayne Cook.
The IoR has a range of free education guidance notes available that explain how to gain recognition as a STEM Ambassador, how to plan school visits, how to get the most out of apprenticeships and how to make use of the IoR Fantastic Fridges website which provides experiment ideas and fun facts on the cooling industry.
