UK based one stop welding products supplier, Weldability-Sif has just announced the official opening of a Foundation level welder training facility at Goole College as part of the ongoing strategy from the Weldability-Sif Foundation Charity to pro-actively encourage the development of new welder training facilities across the UK.

The dedicated welding training suite with fully equipped welding bays, eLearning studio and a new virtual reality welding hub was opened by Adrian Hawkins, Weldability-Sif Foundation Director and Trustee, along with Lynne Richardson, Principal at Goole College, which is one of 16 colleges, who have already agreed to provide training facilities funded by the Foundation Charity, which will be funding welder training facilities at colleges over the next 5 years.

Adrian said: “The Weldability-Sif Foundation was established and registered as a Charity with the Charities Commission to specifically encourage the development of new welder training facilities across the UK. Welding plays an important role in manufacturing and is used in a multitude of different industries including food processing, quarrying, shipping, as well as energy and UK infrastructure industries. Welding plays an active part in keeping it all together and Foundation level welder skills training at Goole College is another step towards a full apprenticeship programme designed to meet demand and overcome the current skills gaps in the UK welding industry.”

Lynne Richardson, Principal, Goole College, said: “This new facility allows us to provide a technology leading, fully joined up training programme that will address the skills shortage that exists within the area. By providing modern, inter-active training solutions we provide an engaging learning environment that captures the students imagination and significantly improves their experience.

These new welder training centres will provide trainee welders with the opportunity to progress from the foundation level through to a passport to practice welding internationally, leading in turn towards higher welding industry qualifications including to the Welding Institute, International Welding Diploma level.”

A Foundation level welder training facility at Hull College has also been opened.
