A new £5.5 million centre has opened in York to address the country’s manufacturing skills shortage.

Lord Mayor of York, Chris Cullwick, cut the ribbon at York College’s new Construction and Engineering Centre Extension and declared its “vitally important role” in addressing the issue.

 A £2.6 million contribution from the Department for Education’s T Level Capacity Fund helped towards the cost of the building.

It was completed within its 38-week timeframe and on budget, a York College spokesperson said.

T Levels are the technical-based qualifications introduced by the government in 2020 as an alternative post-16 educational option to A Levels and include 315 work placement hours.
