Induction

Students

When you join us you will be invited to take part in the Sustainability Challenge, an interactive online activity which will get you to think critically about sustainability in a real world context and empower you to make a difference. As well as completing the challenge, you can also take part in the annual Sustainability Challenge Photography Competition.

You will also be encouraged to log-on to 50,000 Actions. By using our online tool, you can look through loads of potential actions and commit to the ones you care about, record the actions you’ve completed and see how you’re contributing, both individually and collectively, in tackling one of the world’s biggest challenges. You will also discover more about our sustainability strategy.

There are more than 150 different actions you can complete, from volunteering in your local community to reducing single-use plastics in your home - and everything in between. Each and every action, no matter how big or small, helps make a difference and contribute to building a better and more sustainable society. 

We attend the annual Start of Year Fair as well as the Refresher Fair so you have oppotunity to meet the team and find out how you can get involved.
