Caroline Flint has joined Conisbrough & Denaby Main councillors Nigel Ball and Sandra Holland for the official opening of a new training academy in Denaby Main.
CP Assessments Ltd run a construction academy and a flooring academy providing National Diploma apprenticeships for the construction industry. In 2016, the one year apprenticeships offered will rise to 120.
Speaking after the visit Caroline said: “It was great to meet the staff at CP Assessments who provide these quality apprenticeships in general construction, highways maintenance and flooring. To see 120 young people gain these apprenticeships in the next year is great news.
“This company works closely with High Melton College and with various funding agencies to ensure that South Yorkshire has the trained workforce we need for the building projects of tomorrow. I wish this new centre every success.”
Said Cllr Nigel Ball “For young people to have the best chance of secure, rewarding work they need recognised skills and qualifications learned from a quality training provider. I am delighted that we have these training academies on our doorstep.”
Said Sandra Holland: “CP Assessments has grown over five years to the major training partner it is today. I know Mayor Ros Jones is ambitious that Doncaster steps up the numbers of young apprentices our town produces and it is centres like this that help to provide those skills.”
Said Business Development manager, Sid Oates: “We are very proud of the training we provide at CP Assessment Ltd, and it is great that Caroline Flint and local councillors recognise our work and the achievements of young people who come through our academies.”
