Midkent College, through its subsidiary MKC Training Services Ltd, provides artisan, technical and professional training to officers and soldiers at the Royal School of Military Engineering.
The Carpentry and Joinery Programme Area has pioneered a highly successful and innovative use of raw materials, improved raw material procurement systems, new teaching technologies and an effective environmental ‘hearts and minds’ campaign. Compared with pre-project data, achievements include: A saving of £17k in timber resources; paperless student portfolios; an annual reduction in electricity use of 22,000 kWh; and student and employee commitment to sustainability
The college plans to share the successes of this project to achieve similar environmental and financial benefits across the organisation.
