NEIoT digital skills in construction employersThe North East Institute of Technology at New College Durham invited local employers to a digital construction and virtual reality demonstration so they could see what NCD is able to offer organisations to help bridge Digital Skills Gaps.

Two of the members who joined the demonstration studied the HNC in Construction and the Built Environment at New College Durham.

Lewis Bragan, Quantity Surveyor at Lumsdon Wood, graduated in 2010 and Matthew Reed, Design Manager at Meldrum, graduated in 2016.
