As well as the area’s very successful existing Engineering and Manufacturing industries, new technologies such as an offshore wind farm are to be built off our coast at a cost of £300 billion which will need, for instance, operations and maintenance engineers to keep it running smoothly.
Yorkshire Coast College is working closely with all our partners, including Scarborough Borough Council, to ensure that we remain at the forefront of skills training in the area.
Our partnership approach will ensure that the people of Scarborough and the surrounding area develop skills that are needed by employers, hence developing job opportunities for local people. Be a part of this industrial revolution, get ready, train, retrain, have the skills required to be an engineer.
