We live and breathe water at Severn Trent. Not a day passes without us exploring new ways to source it, treat it, pipe it and remove it. And we think it’s only fair we share this knowledge. That’s why we offer a range of activities and site visits to schools and community groups within our region.
Armed with a host of fun group activities, DVDs and hands-on workshops, members from our passionate education team will visit your school or college to give an assembly. From learning about effective water use to looking after your waste water, the team are experts in making the sessions both interactive and informative. Best of all, our workshops are completely free and can even help your school achieve Eco-School status. Our only requirement is that you allow us to deliver an assembly to your whole school and run a water-saving planning session afterwards.
Naturally we’re happy to tailor our workshops and provide talks and presentations geared towards a more adult audience. These workshops can be used to highlight simple day-to-day changes that will help reduce bills, lower waste and have a positive impact on the environment.
Ever wondered how a sewage treatment really works? Or how we turn waste into clean water? Thanks to our education centres in Derby and Cheltenham, you’ll soon have more answers than questions. We offer free site tours to schools and adult community groups within our region, providing a behind the scenes look at the inner workings of a treatment works. Again, our only requirement is that you allow us to deliver an assembly to your whole school and run a water-saving planning session afterwards. Due to their popularity, availability is strictly limited and pre-booking is absolutely essential. All site tours are run by our education team who’ll discuss the unique requirements of your group prior to confirming the booking.
We want every visit to our operational sites to be both educational and entertaining, however our number one priority will always be safety. That’s why we have a set of criteria that must be met:
- All visitors must be seven years and over
- There must be at least one adult for every eight children
- There is a minimum visitor number of 15 and maximum of 32
- The approved protective clothing we’ll provide on the day must be worn at all times
- A pre-visit by the group leader is mandatory for any group that hasn’t visited before
- Visitors must be Severn Trent customers (if you’re not, we’ll help you access your local water company)
