Emma Reynolds, MP for Wolverhampton North East, attended the official opening of a new vocational training centre in Wolverhampton by Nova Training. The new £2million training centre is situated on approximately 1.2 acres and offers training and apprenticeship opportunities in motor vehicle, construction, hospitality, business administration, retail, warehousing, sales, customer service & hair and beauty all of which are supported by Maths, English and employability training.

Emma said “I was impressed by the facilities at the new Nova Training centre. At the official opening I tried my hand at bricklaying, and met the apprentices in mechanical and car repair, and woodwork. This centre is a great resource for young people in Wolverhampton, enabling them to get practical skills based training in a variety of industries.”

“Addressing the skills gap in Wolverhampton has been one of my key campaigns since I was elected in 2010. I am confident that this new training centre will help us close that gap and make sure that our local young people are equipped with the skills to have successful and rewarding careers.”
