Edinburgh’s Telford College is set to invest in the future of renewables in Scotland by launching its very own renewable centre.
The first dedicated centre of it’s kind in Scotland Edinburgh’s Renewable Energy Innovation Centre (EREIC) will offer dedicated training and skills development for workers employed in the renewable and construction sectors.
Launched in conjunction with PPL training– one of the UK’s leading construction and renewable energy training providers the centre will be key in providing training in micro-renewable energy sources and complements the more traditional courses offered to learners such as heritage and brickwork.
Myra Dickson, Head of employer services at Edinburgh’s Telford College, said: “We are delighted with the EREIC, as not only is it a real step forward in the types of training we offer, but also helps to affirm and develop the talent with Scotland’s renewable and construction sectors.
“The new centre will help to ensure that Scotland has workers skilled for modern and environmentally friendly projects thereby meeting the needs of employers and industry both now and in the future.
More than 80 guests from some of Scotland’s leading construction and renewable companies such as PTS plumbing trade supplies, Solar Century, iPower and Travis Perkins attended the launch event, which was organised by staff and learners at the college.
