Global Vocational Skills (GVS) attends official opening of new £5 million Advanced Construction Engineering (ACE) Centre at Northampton College

On Friday 20th September, Adrian, Business Development Manager at Global Vocational Skills, attended the invitation-only grand opening of the brand-new Construction and Engineering facility at Northampton College on Booth lane. 

This state-of-the-art facility was designed to help close the skills gap in specialised vocational skills areas, as well as facilitating the increase of student in-take on construction and Engineering-orientated courses including:

  • - Bricklaying
  • - Carpentry and Joinery
  • - Plumbing and Heating
  • - Painting and Decorating
  • - Engineering 


The day consisted of tours, a lunch networking and talks from the likes of College Principal, Patricia Brennan-Barrett, Peter Horrocks CBE and Business Secretary MP Andrea Leadsom, who had the honour of cutting the ribbon to officially open the facility to the world.

It also consisted of a singing-dancing performance from Northampton Colleges’ Performing Arts students. See photos captured from this surprise event on MP Andrea Leadsom’s website here
