A Scottish head teacher has swapped the classroom for the office to take on a two-year secondment with BP’s North Sea business to help co-ordinate the oil major’s extensive links with more than 200 primary and secondary schools throughout the UK.
Paul Wilson, head teacher at Drumoak Primary School in Aberdeenshire for 10 years, is based at BP’s North Sea HQ in Aberdeen.
In his role as BP education co-ordinator, he will work to support employees who are involved in the BP Link Schools Programme.
Predominantly responsible for 75 schools in Scotland, he also has a wider UK role helping to support the oil giant’s education programme nationwide.
