LEEA to launch Think Lifting Lesson
The Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA) will launch the Think Lifting School Lesson, in association with Lift and Hoist International (LHI) magazine, during a special announcement from CEO Ross Moloney on Zoom at 10am GMT on Tuesday 29 September 2020.
This ‘ready to use’ lesson includes films, content, experiments and hand-outs, designed as a toolkit to help companies connect with their local schools and enhance understanding of the lifting industry.
The Think Lifting campaign was launched last year as part of the LEEA 75th anniversary celebrations.
The school engagement programme aims to highlight career and training opportunities within the lifting industry to secondary school children aged 11-13 years by linking them directly to local businesses in the sector.
Moloney said: “As a result of COVID-19, LEEA has changed the approach of the Think Lifting programme so that the lesson can now be delivered remotely, ensuring compliance with any pandemic regulations. What better way to launch the scheme than doing so on Zoom? I look forward to seeing you there.”
LEEA members have automatically been sent login details for the Zoom meeting, which is expected to last for just over half an hour.
