New engineering training facility opened
A new facility has been opened in Wales that is aims to equip the next generation of engineers with the necessary skills to be a success.

The Engineering and Construction Centre at Yale Tertiary College in Wrexham was officially opened by the first minister of Wales, Rhodri Morgan, Public Technology reports.

Close links with 200 employers have been created with the college, as there is a need for more construction and engineering workers in Wales, Mr Morgan said.

"Construction and engineering skills are an area of high priority in Wales, and I'm delighted to see Yale responding positively to the demands of today's labour market in north east Wales in providing a Centre of Excellence offering a wide range of vocational disciplines," he said.

Half the funding for the £5.2 million college came from the Welsh Assembly, as according to Mr Morgan, this facility will create a "firm foundation" for priority skills areas in the future.

Recent research by Russam GMS revealed that a majority of interim managers feel that there are not enough skilled workers in the manufacturing sector.
