About Networking in Education

Liaising with Key Stage 2 & Key Stage 3 teachers, our Education Advisors bring electricity topics in the National Curriculum to life.

By focussing on electricity and safety, students gain an appreciation of where electricity comes from and how it gets to homes, businesses and schools, and how to stay safe. A range of free downloadable resources are available from the Teachers & Parents section, they help deliver a vital electricity safety message in a fun and informative way.
