North West Regional College has welcomed the announcement that work on £220 million A6 dual carriageway from Drumahoe to Dungiven, will begin within weeks, and look forward to a similar positive announcement on the £160 million A5 Newbuildings to Strabane dual carriageway in the next four months.
John Logue Curriculum Manager for the Built Environment at NWRC said: “This is the largest investment in infrastructure in the history of the North West, an investment that provides many opportunities for our young people to have a career in Civil Engineering; to live near home and to Earn and Learn. “Opportunities will exist for major work placements from the Foundation Degree in Civil Engineering and the Foundation Degree in Construction Engineering. “Job opportunities will be available under the social clauses built into such projects which will also include Level 3 and Higher Level Apprenticeships. “The A6 and A5 projects will be in addition to the current £160m Castledawson – Randalstown project. “The A6 Drumahoe – Caw/Maydown should then follow along with the remaining A5 projects from Strabane to Aughnacloy. “Other projects are also proposed for the Buncrana Road, a possible A5/A6 link road and the Ballykelly bypass. “Road projects have been identified for the next decade and more by the Department of Infrastructure, including the M2/M3/ Westlink York Street Interchange.” NWRC offers full time courses in Level 3 Construction both at the college and in association with North West post primary schools/colleges. A HNC in Construction is also offered with a one or two day attendance mode, plus a Foundation Degree in Architectural Technology. Foundation Degrees at NWRC are offered in association with Ulster University, enabling progression to the final two years of the Degree course. NWRC college lecturers are currently visiting schools in the region to inform the pupils about these exciting career opportunities. Applications are ongoing for all courses commencing in September 2018. To apply log on to
