STEM 

Our network of STEM ambassadors and ECP volunteers supported a variety of events in 2023 from large events run in partnership with The Engineering Education Scheme Wales (EESW) all the way to local primary and high school visits in the north of England.


Site visits

With our operations spanning across the country, a varied client base and a myriad of projects, our ECPs are exposed to a variety of projects. ECP site visits provided the opportunity for those part of different disciplines to experience live projects and learn about the technical aspects of schemes from experienced colleagues on site.

Webinars and workshops

To facilitate knowledge sharing across the business, ECPs hosted a variety of webinars and workshops covering a range of topics from wastewater treatment, sustainability, and carbon in the water industry.


Professional attributes

New for 2023, ECPs hosted sessions covering some of the key attributes required to achieve professional qualifications and chartership including sustainability, commercial, professional commitment and leadership and management.
