Diversity & Inclusion
The Blair Project is a multi award winning social enterprise based in Manchester. We are growing the army of innovators, technicians, engineers and entrepreneurs to tackle climate change by providing opportunities for marginalised youth to develop hands on electrification skills. How ? Through converting petrol go karts into fully electric e-karts which they get to test and race to see who has the fastest and most energy efficient.We are the only organisation in the UK doing this.
ProtoEV is the most advanced motorsport STEM competition in the world for schools, colleges, youth clubs and apprentices in the UK.
Through ProtoEV, underrepresented youth discover talents that they never knew they had, develop skills that industry needs and get hands on with electric vehicle propulsion systems and battery technologies and discover career progression pathways. We are building the schools to employment talent pipeline.
A spinout from The Blair Project, the Manchester Innovation Activities Hub is a £4m Net Zero industriasation and electrification skills training facility to incubate innovative start ups and develop the homegrown talent to accelerate the shift to a green economy.
Opening January 2023.
