The college has employed a dedicated environmental and sustainability sector specialist lecturer to offer the best advice and guidance to bring your staff up to speed.

To find out more details or to book on to a bootcamp, email or call 01952 642554. Places are limited, bookings will be taken on a first come first served basis.

The programmes are part of a £500,000 upgrade in the college’s advanced manufacturing and electrification centre to help deliver a series of new skills-boosting training packages.

The college has invested heavily in cutting-edge engineering facilities

The investment is part of the Marches Education Partnership, backed by the Local Skills Improvement Fund.

Robert Lees, director of automotive, construction and engineering at Telford College, said: “Our programmes have been tailored to address skills shortages in the manufacturing and engineering sectors and support greater automation - with a particular focus on manufacturing engineering maintenance."

The programmes offer a pathway to higher level professional skills development studies at Telford College, such as HND or HNC engineering.
