Grantham College Officially Open Energy Centre

Grantham College has officially opened its new energy centre which sets out to develop students skills and “be part of a brighter future”.

In a ribbon cutting ceremony, principal of Grantham College Paul Dean welcomed visitors to the opening today (December 2), with the Mayor of Grantham, Councillor Graham Jeal cutting the ribbon to open the centre.

In his opening speech, Mr Dean said: “It is a real delight to open these facilities after all of the work from our staff, suppliers and contractors. This centre will help us develop the skills of the students that are so urgently needed if we are to transition to net zero. Sometimes colleges have to lead and take risks and have vision for capacity to be developed. When these skills are developed, the opportunity to develop businesses is there and investing in green skills is a win win.”

The college’s existing engineering and link block spaces have been transformed to create a centre that combines engineering and construction with state-of-the-art and industry-standard equipment.

It provides new learning opportunities in electrical engineering, plumbing, gas fitting and renewable energies including solar, wind and air.

This project also extends the curriculum to not only give students more skills, but allows more businesses to work with the college.
