University partnership will further enhance skills

Nottingham Trent University and VINCI Construction UK have signed an agreement to explore opportunities for a long-term collaborative relationship.
Professor Neil Gorman, Vice-Chancellor of the university, and John Stanion, Chief Executive of VINCI PLC, signed the agreement after a tour of the School of Architecture, Design and the Built Environment at the university’s City site.
It comes after several years of working together on the redevelopment of some of the university’s estates, including the new Student Union building in Nottingham city centre and the new halls of residence at the Clifton campus.
Under the agreement - a memorandum of understanding – the two parties will explore graduate opportunities, student placements, staff development and training, staff shadowing, guest lectures and more.
“This agreement is the beginning of what we hope will become a thriving long-term relationship which will be of significant benefit to both parties,” said Professor Gorman.
“Not only that, but we’re certain that the expertise of our academic staff could be of real value to VINCI and may enhance the already impressive skills and knowledge of their employees.”
