Greater Peterborough UTC (GPUTC) is an exciting new University Technical College in the heart of Peterborough. It aims to provide students with an educational experience that will equip them with the technical skills and practical work experience needed to get ahead in their chosen technical career.
The college is very much based on training and Larfkeet is delighted to be part of this great initiative.
Karl Hick, CEO of The Larkfleet Group of Companies, said:"Larkfleet has been involved in the creation of the Greater Peterborough University Technical College since before the first plans were drawn up. We were one of only three local ‘employer sponsors’ at the outset of the project, donating both cash and expertise to help get the college started.
"As a company we have always placed an emphasis on investing in the future of the construction industry by supporting young local people. The GPUTC will help local students get a solid foundation of hands-on experience alongside educational learning, increasing their skills and providing them with great career potential for the future."
