We are excited to have relaunched our electrical training facilities following a £110,000 refurbishment co-funded by Hertfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership.
The investment in industry-level equipment means our Broxbourne campus can help meet the skills needs of local electrical firms by ensuring its trainees are prepared for a future career in the industry. The equipment includes new assessment and training bays, conduit bending machines, safe isolation kits and inspection and test equipment.
Russell Barwick, Curriculum Area Manager for Electrical at HRC, said: “The continued investment made by both HRC and the LEP into great facilities, training and resources will help build future generations of electricians!”
College Principal and Chief Executive Tony Medhust and Hertfordshire LEP’s operations director Norman Jennings unveiled a plaque commemorating the official re-opening of the facilities at the opening ceremony on 6th June. Norman Jennings said: “The LEP is delighted to have co-invested £50,000 from the Government’s Local Growth Fund to help realise this capital development project. The relaunched facilities will provide value added skill development for both students and local employers by providing a pipeline of highly trained workers for the future.”
We took the decision to upgrade our facilities following the publication of the new Apprenticeship Standards in October 2017 which set out the industry requirements for this sector.
