The U.K.’s Northumberland College is opening a purpose-built training center specifically for teaching about renewable energy.

The Wind and Renewables Centre, based at the Port of Blyt, will offer courses and workshops to allow students to gain experience and qualifications for a career in the renewables and engineering sector.

“Our courses in our Renewables Academy consist of practical training produced by the industry for the industry and are designed to equip the future workforce with knowledge for further development of wind power,” said Ian Palmer, renewables lecturer at Northumberland College.

Courses in renewables at Northumberland College include Level 3 BZEE Wind Turbine Technician Studies – a course where 90% of students go on to work in the wind power industry within 12 months, according to the college.
