New Glass Academy - offers skills development for the glass industry

Following his recent announcement of £5m funding for The British Glass Academy Building, Deputy Prime Minister and Sheffield Hallam MP, Nick Clegg, has visited its prospective site.

This was followed by a tour of the city’s University Technical College (UTC) to meet young people studying engineering, manufacturing and design courses.    

Launched in 2013 by British Glass, The Glass Academy is a skills development programme which offers a complete training programme providing apprenticeships, bespoke glass sector courses and professional qualifications. The provision of a dedicated building will enable the British Glass Academy to extend significantly its facilities, to include ‘mini’ factories for training, R&D facilities and a dedicated educational centre.

Dave Dalton, CEO of British Glass and The Glass Academy, said: “The glass industry is rooted in the work of a Sheffield University department 100 years ago, so it’s fitting that the creation of the British Glass Academy world class centre of excellence as the hub of glass training in the UK will be based in Sheffield in collaboration with the University.”
