Hydrogen Awareness Modules

Developing a low carbon hydrogen sector in the UK is pivotal to meeting the government’s decarbonisation goals. The seven centres that make up the High Value Manufacturing Catapult have developed a series of open access online modules to increase understanding of hydrogen across multiple sectors and stimulate the UK’s transition to a hydrogen-based economy.


Digital Learning Factories

The NCC is offering SMEs in the West of England Combined Authority region the opportunity to develop their digital capability for free, as part of the Workforce for the Future programme. We've created Digital Learning Factory training modules with GKN Aerospace and the Bristol Robotics Laboratory to give businesses and their employees the understanding and confidence to apply digital technologies in the workplace.
