A new training centre to provide hundreds of paid apprenticeships is coming to Yorkshire.
The AMRC Training Centre at the University of Sheffield has been launched by Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg. It is due to be completed in Autumn 2013 and will be part funded by a £9.2 million Regional Growth Fund grant.
The centre will be based in a new 5,500 sq m building located on the Advanced
Manufacturing Park in Catcliffe. It will provide tailored courses of practical and academic skills, from apprenticeship through to doctorate and MBA level, plus continuing professional development. About 250 people will enter each year for advanced apprentice training, with support from their employers. It will primarily serve businesses with operations in the region –
including Rolls-Royce, which is building up to three new factories on the Park.
