Training Academy For Clyde Shipbuilders
A purpose-designed, shipbuilding training centre is to be constructed for BAE Systems on the banks of the River Clyde to help accelerate the modernisation of Glasgow’s historic industry.
The Applied Shipbuilding Academy, to be located at the company’s Scotstoun yard, will support the development of the entire workforce, from apprentices to senior managers. As well as upskilling existing personnel, the project is intended to attract and nurture new talent, to secure the industry’s future for generations to come.
The £12m ($15.3m) academy is due to be completed in the second half of 2024 and will comprise two main elements, the Modern Trade Hall and the Flexible Learning Hub.
