What We Do at Nexus

Nexus Engineering & Training Skills Centre

The £1m Nexus Centre opened in 2012 to offer young people the skills, focus and aspiration needed to join the fast-changing engineering industry on and offshore.

Its mission is to raise the profile and understanding of the huge variety of opportunities in the engineering industry for young people, as well as up-skilling the current workforce across the sector.

It works with more than 400 energy and manufacturing companies and is fitted with the highest specification equipment. Facilities include a manufacturing workshop, energy and renewables, a laboratory, CAD facilities, training areas for electronic, instrumentation, mechanical and electrical engineering, an ICT suite and classrooms.

Qualified trainers deliver engineering skills to all ages to:

  • Address the looming skills gaps posed by an ageing workforce;
  • Provide skilled workers for the developing industries locally, like wind and other new energies.

Nexus is currently in the process of applying for recognition to deliver formally certified qualifications. Please contact us for more information.
