New £4.1m Civil Engineering training centre
Tuesday June 18th, 2019
Construction of Fareham College’s £4.1m new Civil Engineering Training Centre (CETC) has taken a major step forward.
Fareham-based Amiri Construction has started to build the new centre which will be situated at Solent Airport in Lee-on-the-Solent. This will be adjacent to the college’s existing Centre of Excellence for Engineering, Manufacturing and Advanced Skills Training (CEMAST) campus.
Once completed, CETC will be the new home for the college’s pioneering Civil Engineering and Groundworks Apprenticeship (CEGA) which aims to deliver more than 1,600 groundwork and civil engineering apprenticeships in its first five years.
Due to be completed in Autumn of this year, CETC is a partnership between Fareham College and the Solent Civil Engineering Employers Group.
The project has also received £2.8m funding from Solent LEP.
