Students Gain Valuable Insights into Career Opportunities at Triton Power Station

On Wednesday the 8th of May, a group of eight students, accompanied by Careers Coordinator Jo Harding, embarked on an insightful visit to Triton Power Station. Hosted by Triton Power’s CEO, Mick Farr and his fabulous team, the visit provided a unique opportunity for the students to explore potential career paths within the energy sector.

The day commenced with a warm welcome from Triton Power's staff, setting the tone for an engaging experience ahead. Students were treated to an informative presentation highlighting the diverse career opportunities available within the company. From engineering to finance and procurement, Triton Power showcased the myriad avenues for personal and professional growth within the organisation.

A highlight of the visit was the chance to interact with a team of enthusiastic young apprentices who shared their first-hand experiences and passion for their work at Triton Power. Their confidence and dedication served as an inspiration to the visiting students, igniting a spark of curiosity about future career possibilities.

Led by an experienced guide John, the students embarked on a comprehensive tour of the facility, delving into the inner workings of Triton Power Station. From the imposing cooling towers to the intricate water purification systems, every aspect of the plant was illuminated with expert explanations. John's adeptness at contextualising complex scientific concepts in relation to the students' prior studies in Science enriched the learning experience.

The visit was particularly meaningful for Alice, a Year 10 student, who earned the opportunity through her victory at the Women in Manufacturing and Engineering (WiME) event in Hull last October. Alice, accompanied by seven of her peers, seized the chance to delve into the world of energy production and share the enriching experience with her fellow students.

Expressing gratitude, Jo Harding remarked, "Thank you, Triton Power, for an amazing day filled with learning and inspiration!"
