Dundee and Angus College has said it will try to help Michelin staff retrain in order to find alternative employment after the factory’s closure.
A spokesman for the college, which offers a range of industry and skill-based courses, said it would be prepared to help workers young and old when the tyre manufacture ceases production in the city in 2020.
The spokesman said: “D&A College will be working with Michelin and other partners in the city to make sure that there is a co-ordinated approach to help those affected by the factory closure.
“We will be looking to support any apprentices who need help in finishing their qualification or in finding new employment and we will also talk to staff about retraining and upskilling opportunities to help them move on.
“We are happy to run specific programmes and information sessions when the time is right.”
