Hull College has been working alongside NEF to improve and align its STEM strategy and have now proudly completed and released their new STEM Manifesto. The STEM Manifesto outlines the College’s commitment to driving and supporting economic growth and prosperity by playing a key role in meeting the needs of scientific, technological and manufacturing employers in the region.
The College will be focusing particularly on Sustainability and Environmental Technologies and pledges to boost its renewables training to develop a workforce ready to meet the needs of the growing renewables sector.
As part of the pledge, the college will be converting its Preston Road Skills Centre into a dedicated ECO Centre, which will focus on green construction skills, offer courses providing qualifications to assess properties under the Government’s Green Deal building stock energy efficiency programme and offer courses such as sustainable construction and maritime engineering skills.
While speaking at a Green City event in Humber in June, Mr Gary Warke, Hull College CEO launched the new STEM Manifesto and said: "As this region stands on the cusp of potentially a new industrial revolution, powered by renewable energy, we risk having too few skilled workers to take advantage of the well-paid, long-term careers we have craved for so long. We are very proud to have helped to equip so many students with such valuable skills for careers that are personally rewarding and also vital to the region's economy. Our new STEM Manifesto will mean that, in future, there will be even more success stories."
