PLANS to build a world-class training centre to teach young people cutting edge skills, have been given the go-ahead by Rotherham Council.

The development on the Advanced Manufacturing Park, linked to the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre, will be able to train up to 400 people at a time.

AMRC founder and research director Professor Keith Ridgway said: “The AMRC Training Centre is essential to our vision of bringing together research and world-class engineering of the kind carried out at The University of Sheffield with real business challenges and issues in manufacture.”

Duncan Armstrong-Payne, from Harworth Estates, which owns the Advanced Manufacturing Park site, said: “The AMRC Training Centre will provide world class facilities which will complement the work already being carried out at the AMP, where Rolls-Royce recently announced it will build its new turbine blades facility.”
