Donation of training machine set to help SETA

We recently partnered with the University of Manchester to donate over £1500 towards a training machine for a non-profitable training organisation.

The university regularly uses Stockport Engineering Training Association Ltd (SETA) and was therefore keen to contribute towards this beneficial equipment.

SETA provides specialist training and consultancy services nationally and globally with many large multi-national companies especially in the Apprenticeships, Industrial Safety, Supervisory and Skills Development areas.

The Industrial Control Trainer will provide delegates on a range of courses with a classroom based resource for practical investigation of automated control systems. The trainer will also prove valuable to SETA staff, helping to show contextualised links between Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

The collaborative donation with the University of Manchester comes as part of a longstanding relationship, which has seen us provide planned and reactive maintenance for the entire campus since 2001.

We aren’t shy about our dedication to turning around the skills shortage in construction and hope that, through gestures such as this we can equip people with the skills required to do great things in our industry.

THE GOVERNMENT STEPS IN TO SAFEGUARD 53,000 NEW AFFORDABLE HOMES

On Monday 6th July, the Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick announced that the Government will be extending the current Affordable Homes Programme until March 2023. Delays in the Construction Industry Construction on new homes to be built under the Government’s £9 billion scheme originally needed to be underway by March 2022. However, today’s announcement means that housing associations and councils have a year longer to begin building these homes. The extension applies to homes which are in contract to be delivered by the current scheme. The Government has made the move in light of unavoidable delays in the construction industry due to coronavirus, where the building of 53,000 new affordable homes has stalled, putting their eventual completion at risk. Providing Flexibility to Councils Mr. Jenrick said that this measure will give housing associations and councils more flexibility “to help them deliver affordable homes.” He added that “building the homes the country needs is central to the mission of this Government.” This latest announcement follows last week’s package of measures, including confirmation that the new £12 billion Affordable Homes Programme will support up to 180,000 new homes, including for shared ownership and social rent. The programme will lead to a further £38 billion in public and private investment in affordable housing. Full details can be seen on the Government website.
