Partnership secures funding to deliver new project in low carbon, renewable technologies

The Marches Education Partnership is pleased to announce that it has been successful in a bid to work on an exciting new project in low carbon, renewable technologies.

The partnership includes Herefordshire, Ludlow and North Shropshire College, Telford College and Shrewsbury Colleges Group and is supported by other education and training providers throughout The Marches Area.

The partners are committed to working together on a series of initiatives to support our industries by identifying skills gaps and creating course content to meet the changing landscape of what is required. This includes upskilling the existing workforce, future proofing our courses and raising awareness across the Marches area.

Each college is currently undertaking extensive building works, ensuring we are ready to offer the very best training in Electric vehicles, Solar PV, Solar Thermal, Ground Source / Air Source Heat Pumps, Underfloor Heating and Water Harvesting.

Business Development Manager Mike Coakham said, ‘Anyone involved in the heating or vehicle repair industries will need to engage with these technologies if they want their businesses to survive. This is why we are excited about supporting the training and upskilling needs of the current and future workforce, developing and delivering accredited qualifications and putting The Marches area on the renewable technologies map.’
