On Friday 27 April, Theresa visited Berkshire College of Agriculture to meet with staff and student apprentices and to open the college’s new energy centre.
The new centre has installed a training bio mass boiler, understood to be the first of its kind in a Further Education college in the UK, which will be used to turn woodchip into renewable energy.
Officially opening the centre, Theresa said:
“I was very pleased to go back to Berkshire College of Agriculture to hear of the innovative work the college is doing and to open the new energy centre. It is vital that young people have the education and skills to take on the jobs needed for the future.
I was pleased to be able to meet with students who, through using the new energy centre, will be given the training and opportunity to make a real difference to help protect our planet for future generations.”
