MP's delight at Academy launch
The development of a multi-million pound specialist oil and gas academy at Redcar & Cleveland College has been confirmed today (Monday).
The world class facility on the site of Redcar and Cleveland College will train more people in the skills they need to work in the oil and gas industry – a sector which is growing on Tees Valley. The academy will build on the work the college is already doing with new starters and existing management in the industry across the world. The academy will be linked with other similar colleges including an already established facility in Dubai.
Ian Swales, Liberal Democrat MP for Redcar Constituency commented:
“This is fantastic news for our area.
“I have been helping to develop this project for a long time – engaging with local training managers, the Council, private sector and the college in order to lobby central government for investment.
“The academy will bring international business people into the town and will lead to further investment.
“Teesside is on the up.”
