Apprentice wind turbine technicians at Coleg Llandrillo experienced working offshore for the first time.

The students enjoyed the placement after successfully completing the first year of college-based training at Wales's only wind turbine training centre at the college’s Rhos-on-Sea campus.

The students completed the academic part of their three-year apprenticeship programme before working on offshore wind turbines.

Four students were based at Triton Knoll in Lincolnshire and four in Liverpool Bay.

After only one year, the students attained a BTEC level three subsidiary diploma in engineering and a C&G NVQ level two in performing engineering operations.

Coleg Llandrillo’s Wind Turbine trainer and assessor Mark McDonough said: “We are very pleased to continue working in partnership with RWE Renewables to train young persons for the ever-growing renewable power industry.

“We have a proven successful apprenticeship programme for hydro, offshore, and onshore wind power and look forward to many more years working with RWE Renewables.”
