Training for the energy sector

Based on the north bank of the Tyne the Academy provides a centre of innovation, training and development for the energy sector. The Academy delivers qualifications from Level 2 through to degree level in energy technologies, manufacturing and maintenance as well as Apprenticeships. We cover welding and fabrication, renewable energies and subsea engineering . 

Our Energy Academy is a multi-partner, cross regional collaboration between Newcastle College, major employers, local authorities, Sector Skills Councils and strategic stakeholders in the sector.


Facilities include welding bays, fabrication equipment, MMA, MIG and TIG welding, plasma cutting and engineering workshops. The College also has equipment for the testing of 1KW turbines and solar panels as well as Computer Aided Design (CAD) facilities.
