19 November 2010

Some facts and figures

  • 902 14-16 year olds

  • 3,700 16-18 students

  • 16,850 total student population

  • 1,248 apprentices

  • 700 HE

  • 1,051 staff (696 FTE)

  • £37m budget

Key achievements

  • Designated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted

  • Beacon Status College. Winner of 13 Beacon Awards including Employer Engagement

  • Outstanding pass rates across the curriculum

  • Training Quality (Employer Responsive) Standard

  • Matrix Standard Accredited for Information, Advice and Guidance

  • Working with over 80 schools

  • Working with over 2,500 employers

  • Working closely with Sector Skills Council/National Skills Academies – Nuclear, Logistics, Textiles, Creative and Cultural, Construction Skills and Automotive Skills

Nuclear industry

  • South West Hub of the National Skills Academy Nuclear

  • Working with EDF/BE on new build developments and with the NDA and Magnox South on the decommissioning agenda

  • Working with employers within the supply chain including Radwise, Doosan Babcock, Rolls Royce

  • Foundation Degrees in Nuclear Decommissioning/Engineering validated by UCLan

  • NVQs Radiation Protection and Nuclear Decommissioning at Levels 2 & 3 over 100 candidates from across the South West and beyond

  • Radiation Safety Practice Stage One

  • Award for Nuclear Industry Awareness (ANIA)

The new build workforce challenge
THE New Build Workforce Challenge

Key points

  • Peak workforce of 5000 people in mid 2015 – Similar scale to London 2012

  • EDF Energy require a large proportion of workforce to come from Somerset

  • Somerset small, traditional construction economy

  • Somersettraditionally strong in craft based trades / agriculture and engineering trades (good fit for conversion)

  • Skills provision in Somerset geared towards traditional construction trades

  • No comprehensive or ‘Demand Led’ intervention training within the 90 minute commute area

  • Setting out, light plant, slinger, signaler, steel fix, steel frame, cladding require outdoor training space and ‘cut and fill’ facility

  • Experience on London2012 has demonstrated that ‘Demand Led’ training delivered in close proximity to the site is a key element in delivering local people into work.

Construction skills centre

  • Dedicated team working with EDF Energy on development of Construction Skills Centre

  • Centre concept integrates and optimises our existing facilities within Bridgwater College and identifies need for an additional facility for Plant and outdoor related training

  • Experience has shown need for proximity and creation of skills ‘marketplace’

  • Large external training area minimum of 8 acres, training opportunities will include, Plant training CPCS, Steel Fixer, Formworker training

  • Complemented by large internal space, serviced by 10 ton crane, supported by training and IT rooms – CSCS, CCNSG training.


Opportunity to expand Construction Skills Centre to host Constructionarium

Key benefits

  • Proximity to first Nuclear New Build

  • Access to welfare, teaching facilities and land

  • Existing relationship with EDF Energy and supply chain

  • Opportunity to broaden access to both FE and HE

  • Opportunity to use FE links into Schools topromote STEM

  • Potential to use for practical R&D linked to Hinkley C

  • Links with Contractors onsite

  • Potential for sponsorship of materials

Vision for the energy skills centre

  • To be a focal point for Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths education and skills to raise aspirations towards STEM careers

  • To support the training needs of the Nuclear Industry and its supply chain in:

    - New Build Developments

    - Nuclear Operations & Maintenance

    - Decommissioning

  • To support the development of the next generation of Nuclear Scientists/Engineers

  • Support the development of alternative energy skills through training
