Business breakfast at North East Scotland College
As part of Scottish Apprenticeship Week, North East Scotland College is holding a business breakfast on Wednesday, March 2, for employers to view the ongoing £8million extension and refurbishment programme across the engineering, construction and automotive departments at its Fraserburgh campus.
This will deliver an additional 2,000m2 of new facilities, including a science laboratory, which will enable the campus to offer applied science courses. In addition to touring the site, employers will have the opportunity to trial a new self-service online portal designed to provide easy-to-access trainee information.
The portal will allow employers the opportunity to view the timetables and attendance data of their trainees plus their subject details and results as they become available. In addition, employers will also be able to book courses online.
Ian Runcie, who leads the Modern Apprenticeship team at the college, said: “A Modern Apprenticeship is a qualification like no other, providing relevant and industry-recognised qualifications through a mix of study and on-the-job training. The facilities we offer across our campuses mirror those in industry, so what is learned can be applied directly in the workplace.”
The business breakfast will be held from 8.30am to 10.30am. For more information, employers should contact the NESCol Modern Apprenticeship team on 01346 586110 or e-mail MAteam@nescol.ac.uk
