OXFORDSHIRE MP Layla Moran officially unveiled a new state-of-the-art engineering and technology training hub to help develop new skills for the local workforce.

The Oxford West and Abingdon Lib Dem joined a host of local dignitaries, employers and senior management at the Abingdon and Witney College for the launch event on Friday.

Guests were treated to interactive activities and displays showcasing the innovative technology at the new centre.

The college also officially received its Beacon Award which it won in November 2017 recognising its teaching and learning.

College Principal Di Batchelor said: ““The guests were clearly impressed with not only our fantastic new building, but also the innovative and engaging activities put together by our dedicated teachers and students.

“We consider ourselves very lucky to be able to continue to invest in our facilities and hopefully the Beacon Award is one element shining a light on our hard-working teams and their successes.”
