Education and training

We’re committed to developing young people’s skills, to improve their employment prospects and to help make our region more prosperous.

Working with a range of trusted partners, we aim to support and inspire up to 20,000 young and vulnerable people each year, from primary school children to young job seekers.

Our focus is on under-represented STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects, as we are passionate about nurturing the engineers of the future.

For younger age groups, we also work with partner organisations to promote key safety messages, such as the dangers of playing near work sites.

Case studies

We have some exciting projects on the go to help to keep the region cooking on gas and ensure that every penny that we spend delivers maximum value to our customers.

The art of the community

Show more

Not many companies can boast their own community artist.

We have one, however, and his name is Mick Hand. A talented and engaging professional artist from Wakefield, Mick delivers workshops for young people in areas close to our work sites.

To date, he’s delivered more than xxx hours of workshops in local schools. These engaging sessions help children to understand the role of NGN and the dangers of playing near roadworks.

Safety posters designed by the children are used on customer letters, site signage and even van liveries.

Educating and inspiring our young people

Show more

In 2016/17, we worked with specialist partners to engage thousands of young people, from primary school age to school leavers.

We continued to work with the Ahead Partnership, which unites business and academia to deliver vocational training programmes, reaching 9,500 young people.

We provided work experience placements, in office and engineering roles, and ran a young presenter competition with six local schools.

Our partnership with Hull Children’s University also continued, providing educational trips, mentoring and work placement opportunities for 900 disadvantaged 8-11 year olds.
