Quality and Lean Manager recognised for 100 hours as a STEM Ambassador
We’re singing the praises of one of our employees after our Quality and Lean Manager, Ben Feltham, was recently recognised by the Derbyshire Education Business Partnership for contributing over 100 hours towards STEM ambassador activities.
STEM Ambassadors volunteer their time in order to pass on industry expertise and skills to students, coming from a broad range of industries including civil engineering and construction.
Our Quality and Lean Manager, Ben Feltham, has been our STEM Ambassador since 2016 and has clocked up over 100 hours of volunteering time, working with students from local schools including Quarrydale Academy in Sutton-in-Ashfield and Trent College in Long Eaton.
He joins an exclusive group of 200 professionals out of the 4,000 registered that has successfully passed this fantastic milestone. He was recently presented with a certificate to mark his achievement.
Speaking about the news, Ben said, “Myself and the Company are big believers in giving the next generation a chance to learn more about our industry and the options that are available to them in the future.”
“For some students, it’s hard to know exactly what they want to do when they leave school while for others, they already know, and have it all mapped out. We’re passionate about giving young people an insight into what the world of work is like and how the skills of science, technology, engineering and mathematics are applied in an industry such as ours,”
He continues, “It’s an honour to be recognised for my contribution to STEM to-date and I look forward to contributing more time over the coming years.”
Derbyshire Education Business Partnership’s Charlotte Land is delighted to see Ben pass this milestone and is grateful to all of the ambassadors that continue to give time to the programme.
“The time our ambassadors give makes such a difference to our students both in terms of their educational development and their life skills – it really can’t be underestimated. Ben’s contribution to-date has been exceptional, and he is part of a select group that has passed this magic number. We can’t thank him enough and we look forward to continuing to work with both him and McCann in the future.”Back to top
