The Glass Academy Launches New Website

The Glass Academy Project Logo​The Glass Academy, a training and skills development initiative set up by British Glass, has recently launched its newly designed website, www.theglassacademy.org , providing an online platform to bring together the relevant education, training and industry resources to help drive the initiative forward.

Co-funded by the Government’s ‘Employers Ownership of Skills’ programme and the glass industry, The Glass Academy is a multi-million pound initiative aimed at reinvigorating the glass manufacturing sector by providing the highest quality training and skills development across the industry, working closely with employers, schools, colleges and training partners. The key objectives are to boost apprenticeships and up-skill the current workforce to achieve true global competitiveness, securing the future of, and expanding, the glass industry in the UK, currently worth an estimated £2.5billion annually.

New Glass Academy Website Screen Capture The new website, designed by The Workshop in Sheffield, is fresh and modern, reflecting the ethos of The Glass Academy and its activities. In addition, the navigation has been simplified and integrated, with a flexibility to keep the website up-to-date with news stories, training course information and upcoming events through the CRM system.

An e-learning and members’ resource centre will be added in the future to ensure glass industry members are provided with the highest quality training resources and most comprehensive information, with the overall aim of increasing competitiveness and growth within the industry.

For further information about the Glass Academy, the new website, training or apprenticeships, please visit  www.theglassacademy.org  or tel: +44 (0) 114 290 1850.
