The facility at Millennium House on Studley High Street was opened by Mr Zahawi at an event attended by Warwickshire County Councillor Clive Rickhards, Parish Councillor and former Bright Kids employee Sandra Crofts, District Councillor Eric Holder and local businesses that have supported MBK’s start-up including LGD Solutions and CWT Training.
Award-winning nursery group Bright Kids converted the former library into its administration and Early Years training headquarters and it now houses modern, spacious training and meetings spaces.
The training facility is now available for hire to local businesses and groups and will offer courses in many aspects of early years.
Courses on offer include Meeting EYFS requirements (including first aid and safeguarding), Learning & Development for your Team and Business Boosters for Owners, Managers & Supervisors.
MBK will also offer a bespoke training course package, tailored to meet the unique learning needs of individual settings upon request.
Tricia Wellings, Chief Executive of Millennium Bright Kids, said: “I am delighted to be able to get our training academy officially off the ground and we are looking forward to welcoming new learners through our doors in the coming months and years. We are especially excited about offering bespoke training for companies who have identified a need.”
Nadhim Zahawi MP said: “I was delighted to be asked to open MBK’s new training centre. Ensuring that the UK workforce has the correct skills is a vital part of our long term economic plan, so it’s fantastic to see a local facility offering training and opportunities in this important sector.”
