Stephen McPartland MP welcomed Skills Minister, John Hayes MP, to Stevenage to open officially a brand new facility offering welding skills training at North Hertfordshire College Skills Centre.
Stephen said "I am very proud of the groundbreaking work of the Weldability-Sif Foundation Charity and North Hertfordshire College. This amazing initiative which they have developed will help create lots of employment opportunities locally and offer our young people training in a skill with a high paid job at the end of it. This is an inspirational project which has my full support".
Fintan Donohue the Principal and Chief Executive of NHC, a large number of students and representatives of different interested groups attended the ceremony.
