Beattie Passive has provided training for 5 young people at their Training Academy in Norfolk on a workshop-based training course. Following on from the workshop-based training, the trainees developed their skills on-site though erecting structures for Beattie Passive and have set-up their factory in order to deliver units for Vale of Aylesbury.
