MGF’s 5 Year Student Training Partnership With Anglian Water Alliances

MGF’s partnership with Anglian Water Alliances and The College of West Anglia has finished the 2nd year of its 5 year partnership programme!

Students who successfully completed the Construction – Level 2 (Extended Certificate) course at the College of West Anglia this Summer were guaranteed an interview for an apprenticeship role. The rare opportunity is available with Anglian Water Alliances, or one their trusted partners, including Kier, Barhale, Skanska and others.

MGF’s contribution to the partnership saw Peter Dunnion, MGF’s course coordinator, delivering a training module on excavation. This forms part of the Construction – Level 2 (Extended Certificate) qualification sponsored by Anglian Water Alliances.

The course is attended by both school leavers and mature students with the aim to source the very best students direct from education. Once qualified and following a successful interview, apprentices could enjoy a range of excellent company benefits whilst gaining quality experience within the construction industry.

Level 2 study is delivered by college tutors and industry specialists providing the very best learning mix. Anglian Water and its partners approached MGF to deliver an engaging module specifically on excavation planning and safety. Peter Dunnion brought excavation to the classroom with 3D printed models and animated media, designed and produced in-house, to replicate a range of small and large excavation projects.

MGF is in the 2nd year of delivering the excavation module and will continue to be a part of Anglian Water’s 5 year education commitment, with fresh enrolment taking place now for a September start.

This is an exclusive opportunity for construction students as the general public must apply to be considered for a role with Anglian Water Alliance. With 65 apprenticeship places currently up for grabs it could ignite the careers of many West Anglian students.

MGF continue to provide expertise in excavation safety, back the development of new talent and look forward to working with The College of West Anglia and Anglian Water Alliance over the next 3 years.
