West College Scotland and AC Whyte have established a unique Partnership through the creation of a Skills Academy as a direct response to a company identified skills shortage. The College developed a previously underperforming course into a recognised industry qualification with a guarantee of employment on successful completion.
The Partnership has committed to deliver the programme for the next 5 years which will provide a bright and promising future for College students. The College is the only College in Scotland delivering this qualification and providing learners with a unique learning opportunity.
The College identified that upskilling students to apply thermal insulation would not only embed sustainability issues into curriculum delivery but also support the Scottish Government in tackling fuel poverty which affects an estimated 25% homes in Scotland and around 1.3 million people. The initiative has involved industry experts in shaping and directing the curriculum so that it meets the needs of the regional economy. For AC Whyte, they secure a reliable flow of high-quality staff while assisting students to gain a qualification and future employment.
