Wiltshire should and can attract more industry

Wiltshire should and can attract more industry, if we promote technical learning in partnership with industry to provide a skilled labour market. We must also invest in technological innovation.

A lot has been done but there is still a lot to do. Today I was delighted to attend the Launch of the 3D Enterprise Centre at Wiltshire College, Lackham.

I enjoyed talking with local businessmen and educators about the need to develop our career education system to promote engineering and technical roles in our schools and colleges. As well as offering more technical/ engineering based courses from a younger age.Together we can put Wiltshire on the map again as a hub of industry and manufacturing from small businesses to multinationals.
