Kingspan Insulation, not only has a culture of investing in the education and skills of its employees, but also believes that it has an obligation to invest in the education provided by its local schools. To this end, a partnership has been formed between the company and local secondary schools. This is not a totally charitable gesture as, without a well-educated local population, Kingspan Insulation would not be able to sustain its own requirement for a well-educated group of potential employees.
Because of the very nature of Kingspan Insulation's operations, the Company is keen to encourage education in chemistry, physics, IT, design & technology, construction, English, maths, business studies and sustainability.
To this end, Kingspan Insulation is focusing its attention on, and working closely with, the three secondary schools that it helped to achieve of Specialist School status i.e. Kington's Lady Hawkins School, Wigmore High School and Tenbury High School. Kingspan Insulation is keen to keep its efforts in this regard as undiluted as possible.
