AkzoNobel has announced its involvement in a new initiative to inspire young people into careers in the manufacturing sector in the UK. It is joining an exclusive group of companies including Jaguar Land Rover, BAE Systems, GlaxoSmithKline and Tata Steel to take part in the Industrial Cadets scheme.
Launched in January by HRH The Prince of Wales, Industrial Cadets aims to introduce young people (aged 12-16) to the workplace, offering real insights into how businesses operate and equipping them with the skills, information and knowledge of opportunities for a successful career in industry. With support from the Department for Communities and Local Government, the project has been developed for national roll out by the charity EDT, which specialises in linking business and education.

Launched in 2012 by AkzoNobel Decorative Paints in Slough, this allows small groups of local schoolchildren to partake in a series of interactive workshops, combined with a more traditional work experience in different departments
