Windtex Engineering Ltd

Windtex Engineering Ltd

Windtex Engineering Ltd are a specialist wind turbine service provider based in Warrington. Windtex have worked on over 300 sites across Europe along with further international sites.

Windtex have a potential shortfall of future wind technology engineers due to a lack of young people entering the industry. The potential impact of this is that they will be unable to fulfil their contractual obligations with their clients. In order to ensure that this does not happen, Windtex contacted the Pledge. Following an initial meeting to gain an understanding of James’s requirements it was decided that Warrington Vale Royal have a potential talent pool and a relationship was forged.

A project is currently being launched within the college to promote the wind technology industry to a number of learners from a range of subject areas. From this point there will be skills related workshops, a visit to the Windtex training centre and then interviews and group sessions to help identify the most suitable candidates to take forward at the end of the year.

The potential impact for learners is that they are invited to apply for a funded place on the Windtex training programme, usually costing £12,000.

On this broadcast we met James. James is currently in the process of securing funding so that there will be the opportunity for up to 10 learners to be put through their paces at the training centre. Costing £120,000. Not only does this mean that they have the potential to enter a priority industry, but also that it removes the barrier often caused by funding implications.

The LIVE CHAT is always open next to the video player so feel free to leave us a question or comment and we’ll get it forwarded to the panel in advance of the broadcast. Alternatively, browse our education page and find out other ways we’re helping young people.

Length of broadcast: 10 minutes
