I visited Suffolk New College this morning to meet the leadership team. Couldn’t be more supportive of what they’re doing. Got a very ambitious agenda to expand the number of apprentices and are there is also a clear focus on the skills needs of the Greater Ipswich area.
Along with a number of other colleges and the University of Suffolk they have made a bid to form the East of England Institute of Technology. This has my firm support. Would be a massive boost to the region.
