Exeter College is opening the doors of its specialist construction and technology centres to showcase a range of job-focussed programmes.

The Construction Centre and Technology Specialist Open Event is taking place on Thursday, May 10th 2018 between 5-7pm. The open event is a chance for you to come and visit our specialist facilities and find out more about the wide range of courses and Apprenticeships on offer. There’s no need to register, simply arrive on the evening.

Specialist teaching staff will be on hand to show prospective learners the world class facilities on offer at both sites and wide range of programmes, and provide advice on the right programme.

The world class Technology Centre, Cumberland Way, provides aerospace engineering and automotive students with state of the art equipment and learning spaces. The centre provides a wide range of programmes, from engineering, aeronautical engineering, through to a range of automotive courses, including light and heavy vehicle maintenance and repair, vehicle body repair or refinishing, through to mechanical, electrical and trim, and vehicle fitting principles.

A recent expansion to the centre has created a new £3m state of the art Advanced Engineering Centre, featuring robotic technology, virtual and conventional welding, electro-pneumatic equipment, 3D printers, industrial automation and two new fully equipped machining workshops.

Andy Wells, Head of the Faculty of Engineering, Aerospace and Automotive, said: “As a Faculty we are excited to open our doors for people to experience the outstanding teaching from industry recognised staff and the resources we have to offer.

“This is a great opportunity to see first-hand our new extension and the UK leading equipment within which enable our students to have the best opportunities to progress to employment or higher education in the field of their choice.”

The Construction Centre, Falcon Road, has excellent facilities, including two learning centre suites that run CAD, and our facilities offer practical training space for all of the construction and building services courses that the college offers from Levels 1 to 5. Learners are taught by industry specialists in well equipped and professional surroundings.

Programmes and Apprenticeships on offer range from brickwork, carpentry and joinery, painting and decorating, plumbing, bench joinery, electrical installation, construction and the built environment, through to a HNC in Construction.

Rob Woodger, Head of the Faculty Construction & the Built Environment, said: “This is a great time and opportunity to get in to construction trades with all the development work in Exeter and the South West that is taking place. We look forward to welcoming you to come and see our workshops and speak to our industry trained staff.”
