Trowbridge: New Construction Centre
A new Construction Skills Centre at Wiltshire College will be officially unveiled on Wednesday as part of National Apprenticeship Week.
The £3.6 million, purpose-built skills centre opened on the Trowbridge campus at the start of term and now offers an increased range of plumbing, carpentry, electrical, gas, bricklaying and painting and decorating courses.
To coincide with World Plumbing Day on Wednesday,the new facility, also an accredited gas training centre, will officially open its doors to a number of companies representing a variety of trades.
The torch, which symbolises how an apprenticeship transfers knowledge from one individual to another, will signal the start of a plumbing competition on the day between the students of Wiltshire College's Trowbridge and Salisbury campuses, Swindon College, Gloucestershire College, City of Bristol College and South Gloucestershire and Stroud College.
Steve Gingell, deputy director of technology at Wiltshire College Trowbridge, said: It's an exciting time for us, and the day will allow the college to showcase what are state-of-the-art, modern facilities for young people to develop their skills and prepare them for a career in a sector which currently has fantastic employment opportunities.''
