In preparation for the opening of the revolutionary Skills Training Centre at Sherford, the onsite team has been working alongside South West signage company, Eco Signs, to design and construct the brand new signage.

Marking a major commitment into boosting the local construction industry, an investment of over £370,000 has been made into the delivery of the new training facility, which will be based at Sherford for at least three years.

The training centre and scheme will engage a variety of users, including individuals and sub-contractors already working at Sherford. It will also be used by those looking to retrain or learn new skills, with 60% of this group expected to be former members of the Armed Forces, providing training and practical experience to help them develop professionally. Those using the training centre will be supported by expert onsite teams, teaching staff, as well as a dedicated training coordinator based at the facility.
