Their experiences and skills will be transfered into training covering aspects of boatbuilding, from engineering to craftsmanship and from electricals to design work. This element of teaching will be a key feature in delivering excellence to the marine sector.
The new team consists of; Bob Jennings, boat builder, Richard Broden-Cowell, boat electricals specialist, David Woodhams, previous Army marine engineer and engineering expert Nick Farwell. They will be teaching alongside college engineering and construction specialists, headed by Richard Warburton and Mark Loose.
Over £250,000 has been spent creating the new facility and building work on the structure of the new centre is almost complete. The centre will take its first batch of around 140 students including 80 apprentices in the next few weeks. Once established it will have a total capacity of about 250 students.
