The agreement - a memorandum of understanding - will involve the two parties exploring opportunities to work together on placements, research, shared lectures and more. 

Peter Westland, dean of the university’s School of Architecture, Design and the Built Environment, signed the agreement with NM Group’s Geoff Poyzer, managing director for the Highways and Utilities division and Karen Morris, head of HR business partnering. 

Mr Westland said: “This agreement is something we’re very keen on, as forging links with the construction industry is a key priority for us. We feel it will be an enormous benefit to our staff and students alike. 

“Not only that, but the university’s expertise will likewise be of significant value to North Midland Construction and will enhance the company’s knowledge and skills. We are looking forward to working together.” 

Karen Morris, of North Midland Construction, said: “We are delighted to be developing our relationship with Nottingham Trent University. It reflects our Group ethos of engaging and developing talent,  particularly with the skills gap that the country is experiencing with the engineering industry.”
