Youngsters in Fenland still have time to apply for new courses which could set them up for an exciting career in the water industry.

Anglian Water is sponsoring two two-year BTEC courses at the College of West Anglia, in Wisbech, to train up the next generation of engineers and construction professionals.

The first course looks at both mechanical and electrical engineering before allowing them to specialise in their second year. A second course concentrates on construction.

If students pass all modules they will be offered an interview with one of the companies in Anglian Water’s @one Alliance.

Russell Beale, from Anglian Water, said: “We’ve been working in Fenland for some time now through the Wisbech 20/20 project to help the area realise its full potential, so it was the obvious place for us to launch these new courses.

“This is the perfect opportunity for any young people in Wisbech and further afield who are still looking at their options for the autumn to make the first steps in a exciting and rewarding career.”

The courses are open to people of any age from school leavers upwards. Full funding is available for 16-18 year-olds and some funding is available for older applicants.

Anyone wanting to apply or a place must do so by tomorrow (Thursday, August 20) and interviews will take place on August 24. For more information and full details on applying visit www.cwa.ac.uk/one
