Roadworks are set to be carried out at Harrington which will affect traffic to Lakes College starting from Monday, January 30th.

The roadworks will last up to six weeks and students are advised to allow plenty of time to travel to college, especially on GCSE mock exam dates – Tuesday, January 31st and Thursday, February 2nd.

Stagecoach has recommended people catching a bus into college should get on an earlier bus, particularly at the start of the first week as disruptions are at their highest during the beginning of roadworks.

All bus passes including those issued by Cumbria County Council will be accepted if different routes need to be used.

Big Rig

The Big Rig provides learners with hands on experience on a simulation evaporation Rig under the conditions found on a nuclear licensed site.

Big Rig

Learners on the rig assemble commission and operate a mock-up of a real engineered system from the nuclear energy generation lifecycle, be it the primary loop from a new-build station or an evaporator unit from a processing plant.

This facility is the biggest training rig in the UK and is the only Rig created solely for the nuclear industry. We offer a range of experiential and accredited short courses on the rig covering areas such as:

  • Leadership, Team Leading and Project Management
  • Health and Safety and Human Performance
  • Team working and communications
  • Team Building
  • Graduate and Apprentice Training
  • Cost Estimation and planning
  • Work Experience
