Robert Burn, Business Development Director at Axair Refrigeration, visited the Refrigeration VRQ2 students at Bath College. Representing Alessandro Padrin from Eliwell Controllers by Schneider, Robert delivered a donation from Italy of a large number of specialist refrigeration electronic controllers that are required for the new course syllabus.
Robert gave a brief on the Eliwell EWPlus defrost controllers and Coldface Cold Room Panel and their uses in refrigeration applications. The refrigeration course students have recently begun their electrical module and will be using the controllers in their installations, like the one shown in the photo.
Simon Robinson, Refrigeration Lecturer at Bath College, has been in contact with Alessandro for a number of years now; “Alessandro never lets me down with donations of the latest controllers that are coming into the industry for the new up and coming engineers of tomorrow to use and favour. I feel without this type of generosity we would probably struggle to keep up with the changes in industry, but having this allows us to offer better content and courses at Bath College.”
Bath College offers vocational and academic courses in a wide range of subjects and helps students find a course to make sure they have the knowledge and skills for their chosen career. Working together with Eliwell and Axair Refrigeration, the College acts as a fantastic example of industry and education working together to provide up-to-date learning.
The Refrigeration course is held in the Somer Valley Construction Skills Centre, where there is a specialist Refrigeration workshop. The Construction Centre caters for 500 students and apprentices studying bricklaying, construction, carpentry and stonemasonry, as well as plumbing, electrical installation and refrigeration.
As the largest provider of apprenticeships in Bath, the College also offers excellent opportunities for young people to earn and learn on the job. Find out more here.
