Schneider Electric Donates Easy9 Products to Weston College
Schneider Electric, the leader in digital transformation in energy management and automation, has donated Easy9 products to Weston College in Weston-Super-Mare, to support the training of the next generation of electricians.
With over 150 electrical students ranging from full-time level one to level three apprenticeships, the college runs multiple electrical courses allowing students to gain the hands-on skills and knowledge needed to open up career opportunities.
The donation by Schneider Electric of five Easy9 pallets will allow the college to stop using outdated 16th edition boards and improve the quality of student learning and the delivery of qualifications moving forward. “As we move to a more energy focused future, it’s vital that we train our next generation of electricians with the skills they’ll need. With increasing budget cuts to education, we feel it’s our duty to help electrical engineers in their careers by providing contemporary equipment,” said Sean Miller, Electrician Programme Manager at Schneider Electric.
“We’re passionate about working with the electrical community, such as those at Weston College. We’re delighted to provide our solutions to these students and make a difference to their training. Technology and training must to go hand-in-hand if we are to futureproof the industry.”
Christopher Simpson, Weston College’s Building Engineering Services and Environmental Technology Manager, says “An enormous thank you on behalf of our learners and the College for the extremely generous and considerate donation of Schneider products that will help greatly with the training of our full-time learners and apprentices. It is so rare for a manufacturer to engage with technical training at Colleges and contribute towards helping learners understand and comprehend leading industry products and fittings.”
