Bright sparks met local MP Tom Pursglove at a key construction industry event at the Corby campus of Tresham College.
The event organised by Will Gibbs, course manager of Electrical Installation at the College, with sponsorship by Edmundson Electrical of Kettering, saw key business suppliers meet with the skilled construction staff of tomorrow.
Renewable solutions were high on the agenda with explanations of how to wire home electric car charging points, new types of energy sourcing and roof photovoltaic (PV), or solar, panels.
“The skills and technical abilities being learned here at Tresham College are so important to Corby for future employment. We need to have a constant pipeline of trained talent coming through to support the industry.” Said Tom Pursglove
David Wilkins, Director of Construction at The Bedford College Group, of which Tresham is a part, said:
“This was great event put on by Will and colleagues and we thank all those suppliers and businesses who support Tresham College all year round. We’re working together to build a bright future for young people.”
Student winners of the end of year electrical awards were Elek Olah, Brandon Turner and Loren Cooper, who were presented with certificates by Tom.
