CONEL college partners with global engineering giant

A London college has partnered with global engineering giant Siemens to train its next generation of apprentices.

The College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London (CONEL) will provide training for 17 new recruits to the company’s apprenticeship scheme, giving them access to workshops equipped with the latest engineering tools and equipment at its Enfield Centre campus.

The apprentices will train in the design and development of rail systems, including electrification of railways, road traffic systems, healthcare equipment and building technologies.

Martyn Hottas, Siemens’ general manager of skills and professional education, said: “Siemens has always believed in apprenticeships as a very good start to a career in our business. 

“We chose CONEL as our partner college because of its commitment to delivering engineering qualifications to the level required by our business, to prepare young learners for a great career.”

Siemens is one of the UK’s leading employers, and has more than 500 apprentices on its training programme across all its business divisions, including 120 new apprenticeships this year.
