Great Yarmouth college to launch energy, marine and offshore courses
More young people will be able to be trained in skills for energy, marine and offshore jobs on two new courses to launch at Great Yarmouth College in September.
Two industry-designed programmes – one for offshore and onshore energy and the other for marine and offshore - are recruiting school leavers now and are looking for young people with ambitions to work in the three industries.
The Energy Skills Foundation Programme – the energy industry's pre-apprenticeship course – is designed to arm young people with essential knowledge and 'hands-on' engineering training for jobs in the sector.
Keith Dixon, Great Yarmouth College's Business Development Manager for Energy and Engineering said the college had worked closely with EEEGR – the East of England Energy Group and Marine East - to ensure the programmes meet industry requirements and quality.
The programme was complemented by the marine and offshore foundation programme created in response to demand from the supply chain to offshore energy and the commercial and leisure boat industry.
