    The North East’s first health and safety academy

    By Jonathan Brown on September 2, 2016

    The North East’s first health and safety academy

    People in the north-east of England who have aspirations of working in the health and safety industry will soon be able to gain practical skills and knowledge without having to travel too far.

    A dedicated health and safety training academy will be the first of its kind in the region and is due to open at Redcar and Cleveland College in Teesside in September.

    Hands-on experience

    Dedicated practitioners will deliver highly-respected accredited courses covering all aspects of health and safety management, hazardous agents and equipment safety.

    The courses will include the National General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety (NEBOSH), the Level 3 International General Certificate and the NEBOSH Level 6 National Diploma.

    Trainees will also benefit from hands-on, practical experience and will have the chance to work with employers across the country.

    A “unique service”

    Colin Willis, lead tutor in health and safety, said: “I’m thrilled the college is taking strides to provide specialist health and safety provision in the North East education market. We are always looking for new opportunities to expand our service to our students.

    “Drawing upon our reputation, expertise and facilities we look forward to assisting them to raise competence in health and safety management in their workplace.”

    Health and safety courses were previously integrated with other courses.

    “We have evolved to formalise the courses under a training academy banner with a dedicated team of experts to offer a unique service to both employers and students looking to work in the field,” Mr Willis added.

    Enrolment week will take place between August 25 and September 2, and aspiring health and safety professionals are being urged to sign up.

    The new facility is due to open on Monday 5 September.
