Middlesbrough College is investing in new training facilities to make sure students have the necessary skills for the jobs that could be created in Teesside as a result of HS2.
It has a £20 million STEM training centre to educate students in civil engineering, electrical engineering and construction management, and it is currently teaching more than 750 engineering and construction apprentices.
Zoe Lewis — principal and chief executive of Middlesbrough College Group (www.mbro.ac.uk
), which includes Middlesbrough College, Northern Skills Group and TTE Technical UK — said: “We are investing in the training facilities and course provision to make sure we are offering a solution to the challenges industry faces.
"We are also building the skills needed to fulfil some of the country’s biggest infrastructure projects, like HS2.
"We want people to know they can access industry-leading training here on Teesside — and we will continue to build on that reputation, providing skills and opportunities to benefit learners, workers and employees.”
