bp signed a memorandum of understanding in March 2022 with Redcar & Cleveland College to develop educational programmes for clean energy industries, including a Clean Energy Education Hub funded by GBP 50,000 from bp. Together, they'll create a careers pathway plan focusing on skills demand for proposed projects in the region, aligning higher education, apprenticeships, and professional courses with employer needs.

This initiative aims to equip people with green career skills and support Teesside's transition into a low-carbon energy hub. The partnership also involves supporting primary, secondary, and college students, inspiring them to pursue clean energy careers. Furthermore, bp will back the Children Challenging Industry programme in 22 primary schools, allowing young people to experience science in an industrial context. These efforts are part of bp's commitment to social and community investment, contributing to job creation and economic growth in the region. Through projects like Net Zero Teesside Power and H2Teesside, bp aims to create significant economic value and thousands of jobs in Teesside, supporting its role in the UK's energy transition.
