Celebrating the region’s best and brightest, the flagship NEPIC Awards support STEM education across the North East Chemical-Processing sector, with winners able to select a local school or initiative to receive funding towards a science related project.
PD Ports allocated £2,000 winnings to Tees Valley Education after realising their shared ambition to support primary school children with opportunities to investigate and experience a range of STEM and enterprise in the region. CEO, Katrina Morley, expressed her thanks on behalf of the Trust, when she added:
“Tees Valley Education send heartfelt congratulations to PD Ports on winning the communities and reputation award at NEPIC annual event.”
“PD Ports have consistently demonstrated their commitment to children, young people and the Tees Valley through supporting a range of learning and development opportunities.”
“Therefore, TVEd are grateful for the £2,000 donation to support our shared enterprise curriculum and look forward to continuing to raise the aspirations, life chances and future outcomes of our children and communities.”
PD Ports is currently celebrating its 20th year of supporting young people through apprenticeships, which also coincides with the companies largest ever recruitment drive as it looks to recruit 50 new apprentices across its operations. On behalf of the children and community we are very much looking forward to the next stage in our collaboration.
