Hamilton to take part in SPARKS ‘Meet the Lecturer’ events to support the training of up-and-coming electricians


Continuing its ongoing initiative to support the next generation of professional electricians with training and education, Hamilton has confirmed its 2019 partnership with SPARKS and participation in three regional SPARKS events. Hamilton will present its range of high-quality smart lighting control and multi-room audio solutions to college staff as part of the ‘Meet the Lecturer’ event programme, which provides a unique opportunity to engage with those teaching young apprentices their trade.

Hamilton will present at the following events: 

• 22 January 2019 - South West - Petroc College, Mid Devon Campus, Devon
• 24 January 2019 - Wales - Gower College Swansea, Jubilee Court Campus, Swansea
• 21 February 2019 - South East - West Herts College, Kings Langley Campus, Kings Langley


Taking place in early 2019, the events will assist Hamilton in its efforts to minimise the industry skills gap and further develop its relationship with key colleges, particularly those close to its headquarters in Bristol. Hamilton already has an existing relationship with West Herts College, having donated smart lighting and audio control demonstration units to support training and education on smart controls at the college.

The sessions will be run by Hamilton’s newly-appointed Business Development Manager – Smart Homes, Justin Whitham. “We’re very much looking forward to the opportunity of engaging with college lecturers and updating them on our latest smart solutions,” says Whitham. “By continuing our educational work around smart controls and by creating brand ambassadors in college lecturers we are passing on key information about smart controls and our products to the next generation of electrical installer. We’re very keen to increase our presence in colleges and to provide training materials that will educate and promote the growth of smart controls.”
