A £129k project including £70k Growth Deal funding to create a training centre at the Hereford campus focusing on energy production, installation and servicing technologies, with an emphasis on low carbon and renewable energy sources.
The investment will create the necessary physical workshop and training space within the existing Construction Centre and enable the expansion of the construction curriculum offer to incorporate Gas training & assessment, Oil training and assessment (OFTEC), renewables (Solar Voltaic, Solar Thermal, Ground Source Heat Pump etc), and potentially a HETAS training centre (for solid fuel/Biomass heating appliances).
