ENGINEERING AND CONSTRUCTION SKILLS
LESSONS THAT LAST A LIFETIME
MPower Kernow C.I.C. (MPKC) is a new social enterprise established to create a unique technical training centre for STEM, Construction Industry and Environmental Technology Skills.
MPKC and its phase 1 development, “Operation Trevithick,” will shine a light on the world of engineering and construction, opening people’s eyes to the practical world of making things, planning, problem-solving, building, and working together. MPKC will motivate people to explore career paths and opportunities that are possible with engineering, practical trades and emerging technologies. It will also harness the incredible stories of historic Cornish engineers and innovators to inspire this interest and explain many technical principals using a hands-on, practical approach to learning.
“MPower Kernow C.I.C. will provide practical, equal opportunity learning opportunities and work experiences for the community of Cornwall to gain the real-life STEM, Construction Industry and Environmental Technology skills required to meet the international economic demand for highly skilled personnel and to meet Cornwall’s Climate Emergency Goals”.
