A SPECIALIST facility has been launched to train future Wylfa workers.
Coleg Menai and CITB’s National Construction College officially launched the training centre in Llangefni, which will equip youngsters with the skills needed for energy sector developments, especially Wylfa B, and other projects in the region.
Carl Sargeant AM, Minister for Housing and Regeneration, attended the official opening.
He said: : “The Welsh Government is fully committed to helping the people of North Wales maximise the benefits of this nuclear project, and skills development is at the heart of this.
“It was pleasing to meet with both Coleg Menai and CITB’s National Construction College today to learn more about this important partnership and the vital training that it will provide for local people.”
Dafydd Evans, principal at Coleg Menai, added: “This is a really significant development for Anglesey and the whole North Wales region.
“It fills a major training gap and boosts the capacity of the region to deliver on major infrastructure projects, especially energy generation and support activities.”
