Central Suffolk and North Ipswich MP, Dr Dan Poulter recently visited Otley College. He met with Otley’s Principal, Philip Winfield, who urged the government to continue to support further education qualifications. Mr Winfield also talked about the forthcoming National Apprenticeship Week that takes place at the beginning of February, and outlined college plans to have a careers event and a construction competition with schools during this campaign.
After a thirty minute chat with Otley’s Principal, Dr Poulter officially opened a brand new IT facility. The new learning resource centre has state of the art equipment for learners and guarantees a quiet place to study on campus.
He then chatted to some enterprise students about issues affecting them today. The topics that they covered included the economy, transport, employment, Afghanistan, and the new train link from London to Birmingham.
