Today I had the pleasure of attending the opening of Lincoln College’s Construction College and ECOnstruction Centre of Excellence by the Chairman of Lincolnshire County Council, Cllr Tony Bridges, and Gusto Group’s Steff Wright. As you may know the Construction College at the Gainsborough campus was the UK’s first Construction Career College opening in 2016, and Lincoln College is continuing to innovate with the opening of the new employer-led centre of excellence.
The event was well attended by representatives of the local construction industry and offered the fascinating opportunity to enter the college’s Monks Road campus and have a look around. I have not previously been onto the campus and it is truly impressive, more like a village then a further education institute!
The speakers at the event were very engaging and it is clear the college is keen to get local businesses involved and encourage them to help the college to design and deliver training to meet the industry’s needs. Globe take their responsibility seriously as ambassadors for the planning profession and look forward to offering our assistance in the future.
