A state-of-the-art Skills and Education Hub that will give Bassetlaw residents a better future and address skills shortages for the NHS and local businesses will start to take shape in just a few weeks’ time when building partners Lindum Group move onto the site.
The former Bridge Court building at the gateway to Worksop Town Centre will be transformed from a long-term neglected eyesore into a modern and contemporary learning facility as Bassetlaw District Council, along with its partners, enter the next phase of realising a shared vision.
The Worksop Access to Skills Hub will offer opportunities across a range of subjects including health and social care; digital and digital transformation; green technologies and low carbon and construction. It will create 50 jobs and support 300 learners.
Funding of £3.5million was confirmed by the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership as an allocation from their Getting Building Fund (GBF) on 15 February.
