The HotSW Local Skills Improvement Plan demonstrates the importance of travel in and out of the region, the significance of tourism to the counties and the determination to protect its renowned landscape.
With its ever growing focus and concern globally Clean propulsion will become a leading industry for our learners as they begin on their career journeys. With more and more local and regional responses to the promotion of clean propulsion and sustainable transportation, this industry will soon require a strong workforce to ensure it fulfils its ambition to protect our environment.
BTC is committed to skills development and the sector of clean propulsion has provided the opportunity to expand the way in which we deliver, an opportunity made possible through the HotSW Local Skills Improvement Fund.
In 22-23 BTC built a strong relationship with Zipp Mobility, Irelands leading micromobility provider. Zipp Mobility have deployed numerous fleets of public use electric scooters across the country, impacting our community in Taunton town centre.
Zipp Mobility join BTC in ensuring that our young people are prepared with the skills this industry of transportation requires as it continues to prove its impact.
BTC are busy designing and developing our own innovative testing facility through the HotSW LSIF to immerse learners into the world of electric motors, instrumentation and control, fault diagnosis and maintenance using Zipp Mobility components to learn these crucial transferable skills.
