The next generation of construction workers are set for a bright future thanks to the work of the Greater Brighton Economic Board (GBEB).

The new £9 million Trades and Construction Centre in east Brighton has been made possible by local growth deal funding, secured by Greater Brighton through the Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership, as part of a drive to boost skills in the wider area.

Ahead of the hub being opened to students in September, GBEB chairman Dan Humphreys was given a tour of the site in Wilson Avenue by Nick Juba, CEO of Greater Brighton Metropolitan College (the MET).
