STUDENTS from schools across Anglesey and North Gwynedd are being offered a window into the working world of Wylfa Newydd, as part of Horizon’s 2018 Work Insight Week.

Applications are now open to year 11 and sixth form students for this year’s scheme, which will be held this July at Coleg Menai’s Energy Centre in Llangefni.

The popular Horizon initiative offers 28 students from across Anglesey and North Gwynedd the opportunity to take part in a range of activities run by Horizon staff, designed to get students thinking about working life.

As well as finding out how Horizon intends to build and operate its proposed nuclear power station, the students will visit the site to learn more about the Project and employment opportunities Wylfa Newydd will bring to local young people.

Over the course of the week, they will also develop some of the key skills they will need to use when they enter the working world.

This will include chances to practice their interview technique, consider the importance of communication and practice their leadership and team working skills.

At the end of the week, the students will all be asked to create and deliver a presentation for the Horizon team, explaining what they have learned about the Project during their week.

Horizon Nuclear Power’s Education Programme Coordinator, Claire Burgess, said: “We’re really excited to be running this popular programme again.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity to introduce young people to the work we’re doing and inspire them about the potential of working with us in the future, we’re already looking forward to welcoming them to the Energy Centre and the site in the summer.”

Work Insight Weeks this year will be held on July 9 to 13 for pupils in Year 11 and July 23-27 for pupils in Year 12 and 13.
