A new £1m refurbished apprenticeship training centre, specialising in the construction industry, set to open in Bicester early next year.

Launched as part of Abingdon & Witney College’s apprenticeship programme, the state-of-the-art facility will provide exciting opportunities for apprentices to train for the fast-growing property maintenance sector, alongside professional skills in the plumbing, electrical installation, carpentry and joinery trades.

The Oxfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership (OxLEP) secured £934,611 of funding for the project via the government’s Local Growth Fund.

Work on the Centre started at the beginning of July and is expected to completed by January 2021, with the first cohort of students due to start in February.

From planning, to reality

The centre will house the type of industry-standard equipment that apprentices will find in the workplace, including a professional gas centre, electrical training bays for wiring regulation training and a large carpentry workshop.
