JTL has new partnership with Central Bedfordshire College

JTL has announced its new partnership with Central Bedfordshire College. The partnership, which will focus on the delivery of electrical and plumbing apprenticeships, will be taught in the Incuba part of the college.

The courses will consist of both classroom and workshop-based learning. Each apprentice will be allocated a dedicated JTL training officer who will assist them through their learning process, as well as providing invaluable support to employers who have a JTL apprentice attending the college.

JTL is working with Central Bedfordshire College on the development of brand-new workshops, which are set to open this Spring. The partnership will provide local young people with the opportunity to develop career-ready skills, which in turn will benefit local employers by giving them access to a homegrown talent pool.

JTL’s chief executive, Jon Graham, said: “We are delighted to be forming this new strategic relationship with Central Bedfordshire College. By bringing the strengths of both organisations together, I am confident that the partnership will have a positive impact on the learning environment for staff, employers and apprentices alike, as well as continue to improve local skills for the building services sector.”

Ali Hadawi, Central Bedfordshire College principal, said: “The partnership between Central Bedfordshire College and JTL is a unique opportunity for this area, enabling a strong building services sector-based presence to be created which supports students, apprentices and employers.

“By working collaboratively in sharing resources and great practice, the College and JTL can collectively offer skills and training solutions and opportunities that meet the skills gaps in this area; offering employers and prospective employees real support in more ways than ever before.”

A launch event will take place at the college in the Spring, which will give both employers and their trade representatives the opportunity to look around. Attendees will be introduced to JTL, Central Bedfordshire College staff and its apprentices. They will be able to see how both partners work pro-actively together to help meet the skill needs of employers and encourage greater local economic prosperity.

Whitepaper tackles legionella risk

Low occupancy rates in commercial buildings could be leading to a ticking time bomb of water quality issues according to Guardian Water Treatment.

To help building owners take the right steps to prevent these issues, in particular legionella, the company has launched a new whitepaper – Locked down but not forgotten.

In the whitepaper, Guardian draws on its own data from over 30,000 samples taken from commercial buildings, predominantly in London, over a six-month period starting from April 2020 (when the first lockdown began).
