Primary School Student Engagement Programme
HIGH SPEED TWO (HS2) LIMITED
-The Education Programme is an integral element of HS2 Ltd’s broader approach to creating skills and employment opportunities. It aims to educate and inform children, young adults, and their families about HS2 and the employment and training opportunities it will create and support, prioritising schools closest to the line of route, stations and depots, with a focus on schools that are in more deprived areas and score below average for educational attainment. It has so far delivered more than 35,000 hours of educational engagement to 30,000 students during the course of over 170 events.

A more detailed overview of our current programme is available as a government information paper. Information tailored for teachers is presented at www.plotr.co.uk/hs2forteachers.

Given the levels of interest in the project nationwide, HS2 Ltd is particularly interested in developing a more scalable programme which can be accessed by students wherever they are located in the country. This is a key driver to create an online resource which is central to the planned primary school engagement programme.

Proposal to engage primary school students
As recognised in the recently published Transport and Infrastructure Skills Strategy there is an anticipated significant shortfall in skills of value to the Transport and Infrastructure sectors. To address this and plan for the long term, it is imperative that HS2 Ltd begins to reach out to primary school students. This fits with Hs2 Ltd’s Education Programme aims of raising awareness of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM), encouraging under-represented groups to join the industry and promoting relevant career pathways.

As part of our efforts to deliver the above, HS2 Ltd wish procure a supplier to create an online learning platform which will give access to the programme to a wide range of schools. The online platform will be supported by a series of short events delivered to schools along the line of route.

The main objective of the programme will be for students in Key Stage 2 (aged 7-10) to develop an early understanding of the skills requirements and career opportunities connected with the HS2 project. The successful supplier can be expected to bring a broad range of experience to the delivery of the Programme.
