Education and learning

Working with schools

Our team of education advisers work with hundreds of schools and thousands of students every year. You can book an education adviser to visit your school, virtually or in person.

Please note: Due to the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, we have four sites that are open for visits. These include our Holdenhurst, Trowbridge, Ashford and Weston-Super-Mare sites. Social distancing and extra measures will be in place at these sites. 

If you would like to book a future site visit, please fill in our booking form. One of our education advisers will be in touch to keep you updated on when our sites will reopen.

Please email education@wessexwater.co.uk if you would like to find out more.

Careers

We support schools in highlighting potential career paths for students.

Many of our jobs require STEM skills but there are just as many jobs needing other skills to support our water supply and sewage treatment operations. 

We welcome the opportunity to talk to your students about all our careers.

We can come to you...

We visit on most days throughout the school year, delivering a range of services from a short school assembly to classroom learning.

With each visit, we design a programme to tie in with your objectives and class teaching.
