At Harrow, Richmond and Uxbridge Colleges (HRUC) the green skills agenda is embedded into our curriculum with units across several of our courses, particularly within building services, construction, engineering, sustainability, and food-to-fork programmes. The work extends through to our higher-level technical qualifications which are part of our West London Institute of Technology provision.
Within construction and engineering courses at Richmond Campus there has been an investment in ground-source heat pumps, retrofit and PV panels to continue providing the skills and knowledge our students need to meet employer needs.
There are also discrete units on many courses and we are developing a course linked to low-carbon transport. This aligns with our existing e-vehicle and hybrid vehicle courses with facilities that include a CarTrain, automotive technology products through Lucas Nuelle, and an electric mini, providing students with the opportunity to extend their practical skills along with underpinning theory and knowledge. We are delivering workshops to our GCSE students to increase awareness of green skills and green jobs along with employability skills needed for the future.
