Our education centres

There are eight education centres across our region

We'll always include opportunities for hands-on practical work in or around the education centres and a guided tour of the works.

We provide schools with detailed risk assessments for every site visit and encourage pre-visits from teachers if they have not been to our site before.

Some sites have disabled access (see below) and some have areas that are restricted. Please speak to an education adviser to discuss your particular needs.
