Ben Bradley, MP Mansfield, quizzed by learners aiming for employment
Mansfield MP Ben Bradley was the focus of an inspiring and insightful question and answer session from young learners at ITS College. Around fifteen enthusiastic learners posed a series of questions relating to the local environment, employment market and area in which they live.
ITS College officially opened a new, larger training centre in Mansfield in October 2018 as part of its expansion to continue to meet local demand for training and workforce development. The 4,500sqft premises located in Chaucer House, Commercial Street, by St. Peters Retail Park provides additional training rooms and break out areas.
Ben Bradley commented, “I really enjoyed visiting ITS College this morning to see their new site, where they've been able to expand from 15 learners to 50, offering work-based learning and support to get into employment. I spoke to the learners about Mansfield and our local priorities, and it's great to see the college flourishing in their new home!”
The new training centre is part of the strategic growth plans for ITS Group, supporting local learners and employers in a range of education, training and workforce development services, which include:
- Study Programmes
- Adult education programmes
- Careers guidance and advice
- Technology and business skills training
