Severn Trent offers 10 students employability training

12 July 2016

Severn Trent has joined forces with social mobility charity Team Up  to organise a special week-long employability programme aimed at sixth form and university students.

A total of 10 students from schools and universities from around the region will take part in the week, called the Severn Trent Employer Pathway, which has been specially designed to provide an insight into the world of work.  Adam Stevens, from Severn Trent, said:


“We want to give the students an introduction to Severn Trent and to all that we do, especially as they might not otherwise think about us as a potential future career path.  “Alongside that, we’ll also be providing coaching and working sessions on a range of skills, including a Dragon’s Den-style challenge that will concentrate on very real issues within the water industry.”  The programme takes place at Severn Trent’s Coventry headquarters and at Draycote Water, near Rugby.  Students from a range of schools and universities applied, with the final 10 receiving invites for the week coming from:


•    Aston University;

•    Coventry University;

•    Queen Mary University of London; 

•    President Kennedy School and Community College in Coventry;
