East Riding College is today launching a £2.8m project to support local businesses to take advantage of massive predicted growth in the energy industry.
The College’s Energy Technology Centre (ETC), which is jointly funded by a grant from the European Regional Development Fund, will provide facilities for small to medium enterprises (SMEs), corporate support services and links to training across a range of business, energy and environmental services.
Motorcycle maintenance students at East Riding College are developing their skills on four new bikes, thanks to donations from major manufacturers.
Yamaha has provided the College with an FZ8 motorbike and a range of parts, including carburettors, fuel injectors, alternators, starter motors and front forks. Suzuki has donated SV650 and GSR600 bikes and a quad bike.
Engineering students from East Riding College will next year be honing their skills with £220,000 of new industry standard equipment, thanks to a grant from the Skills Funding Agency (SFA).
The computer numerical controlled (CNC) equipment will mean that learners are working on the latest in industry technology and are well prepared to join the region’s workforce.
