Stewart Hartshorne, Training and Development Specialist


During our collaboration with Dudley College, they have consistently demonstrated unwavering support for our goals. The students have exhibited remarkable enthusiasm and a genuine eagerness to acquire knowledge. The college harbours ambitious aspirations and is committed to the success of each staff member and student. They have fully embraced our commitments and have expressed a desire to further strengthen our partnership by establishing a solutions centre that provides top-notch training in cutting-edge low-carbon solutions. Additionally, the college aims to reduce its carbon footprint by transforming the centre into a self-sustaining entity through the installation of solar panels, battery storage, and ground/air source heat pumps for heating purposes. This will allow the students to understand and train on the latest products and fit into our customers' homes in the future.

Other than supplying materials for the college for the use of the students, we also donate prizes in the form of tool kits for the end of year awards ceremony to the pupils that have excelled in their course. I have also donated sample light fittings, displays and posters as I know they can be of use to the college. It is great when visiting the college, I see students that work as apprentices for our customers. When I see them on our counter or their work place, they talk highly of the college and the lecturers there. Finally, I would HIGHLY recommend Dudley college if parents are considering their children attending further education. I can speak from experience that I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. My son attends Dudley College and also speaks highly of his course and lecturers. On campus I see lots of positive interaction between staff and students. When I speak to apprentices out of the college environment they talk highly of their course, fantastic facilities and staff that teach them. I look forward to many more years working with the Dudley College electrical team.
