Great showcase for what can be achieved

IT’S an exciting month for us as we approach the Golden Apples Awards Evening on October 6. We’re extremely happy to support the event for the second year running and showcase the fantastic achievements being made in education in Cumbria.

Learning is at the very core of Britain’s Energy Coast Campus as we work in partnership with higher and further education and training partners to grow a local workforce with the right skills needed to make West Cumbria one of the key locations for energy production in the UK.

We are fast becoming an area with a reputation for nuclear and sustainable energy learning and training excellence.

At the world-class Energus facility in Workington, the fantastic location for the Golden Awards events evening, the University of Cumbria’s Learning Gateway West is developing its teaching and research capacity in low-carbon energy and engineering, and offering specialised courses including degree courses in Sustainable Energy Technology and Radiation Protection. Energus is also home to Gen II, still the largest provider of training in the civil nuclear sector in the UK and continuing to develop new skills and qualifications to power the next generation of the energy workforce whilst the high-tech building also hosts the Centre for Leadership Performance. Developed in 2010 with support from Nuclear Management Partners, the Centre is developing leadership capability across the private, public and civic sectors in Cumbria.

At the same time we are working in partnership with Nuclear Management Partners and Lakes College to develop the £7million Britain’s Energy Coast Construction Skills Centre as the base for a new vocational construction curriculum based around low-carbon construction techniques and skills related to nuclear new-build. Meanwhile, the University of Manchester’s Dalton Facility, a new £20million state-of-the-art complex will open next month and provide West Cumbria with a scientific research base unique in Europe and will achieve global recognition as a trusted provider of world-leading fundamental and applied research and world class skills for industry.

All this is just an example of what can be achieved in Cumbria and these successes in the learning arm of the energy sector are being replicated all over this county in the education sector and beyond, many of which will be celebrated at the Golden Apples Awards next week. There are so many devoted and talented people in the education, learning and training field and events dedicated to honouring these individuals are ones in which Britain’s Energy Coast Campus are delighted to be involved.
