Welding in the classroom

Welding supplies firm Weldability-Sif has joined a local initiave to teach young people key skills – in this case, welding.

The firm has donated tools and time to the project, spearheaded by North Hertfordshire College. The group will work in conjunction with The Welding Institute in Cambridge and the training will be a step towards a full apprenticeship programme.

Adrian Hawkins, Managing Director at Weldability-SIF and former student at North Hertfordshire College said: “Around 200 existing NHC students will benefit directly and many other students will be attracted to the NHC Skill’s Centre in the future. We’ve helped establish a dedicated welding classroom and workshop at Stevenage Skills Centre as a pilot for a series of 40 similar operations in colleges around the UK.”
