Business Minister welcomes new Skills College


Business Minister Nick Boles accompanied Erewash’s Prospective MP Maggie Throup on a visit to newly opened Derbyshire Construction Skills College in Stanton-by-Dale.

Maggie Throup said: “It was great to meet with David Hartshorn and Richard Clapp, Directors of Derbyshire Construction Skills College to learn first hand about the new training facilities and their vision for the future.

“I’m always delighted when a new business starts up, especially one that is aimed at meeting the needs of local business and their staff.”

“I am very grateful to Maggie Throup for taking me to the Derbyshire Construction Skills College. Our growing economy is creating a large number of new jobs in the construction sector so the DCSC is well placed to help lots of people in and around Ilkeston acquire the skills they need to get rewarding jobs.”
