Courses on renewable energies will be delivered from the Port of Blyth thanks to a new partnership.
Northumberland College launched its renewable training courses in 2009, the first of its kind in the UK, and the courses will now be run from the Port of Blyth.
The Level 2 qualification is designed for those with no previous engineering background who wish to pursue a career in the wind energy sector, and Level 3 courses aimed at trained electrical or mechanical engineers.
Stuart Cutforth, principal and chief executive at the college, said: “This is a very exciting new partnership for the college.
“The renewables sector continues to be a growth industry and the college is dedicated to providing training to meet the skills needs of the industry.
“The new base at the Port of Blyth and the organisations skills in the sector will further enhance this.”
Martin Lawlor, chief executive at Port of Blyth, added: “We are delighted that Northumberland College are moving to the Port which will only enhance Blyth’s growing reputation as both a handling and training hub for the renewables sector.”
