Gareth Davies MP has welcomed the announcement that Stamford College has been awarded a £2.1 million grant from the Getting Building Fund.
The money will be used to extend the Construction and Automotive Skills Centre, enabling the college to expand its range of offered courses to include painting, decorating, and plastering as well as extending the levels offered from trade to technical up to Level 6.
Commenting, Gareth said:
“I am delighted to see this latest new investment in Stamford College. I have supported this bid from the start and am delighted to see the college secure funding from the LEP.
“Stamford College is an incredibly important institution in our town, a point I have highlighted in the House of Commons on several occasions and have called for increased funding.
“The Government’s levelling up agenda is built around further education and skills, none of which is more important than construction. This £2.1 million is a commitment to the young people of Stamford and an investment in future jobs which will enhance the technical expertise of the area for years to come.”
