In recent years
there has been a skills shortage in Engineering and the College
has worked closely with companies in the Grantham area to meet
the local need for skilled employees. Based on the engineering
department's excellent reputation for providing training the
College now operates a sponsorship scheme for students in
conjunction with local companies.
A broad range of
training is available at Grantham College including basic
fitting, fabrication and machining skills, electrical
engineering, electronics and computer-aided engineering. The
College stresses the importance not only of acquiring
theoretical knowledge but also hand-on experience.
