Skillshub Cumbria at Lakes College

Meet, work and collaborate in our facilities designed to strengthen local business links with education


“It's very comforting to know that we have a Cumbrian base that has so many first-class resources. The Hub itself looks fantastic and provides a great environment for when I meet with my apprentices when I visit West Cumbria. I really would be lost without this facility.”

Kieron Hersnip, early careers advisor at National Nuclear Laboratory
