In partnership with the LEP, we invested £3.3 million of Leeds City Region Growth Deal funding into the Wakefield College Advanced Skills and Innovation Centre (ASIC).

The centre, which is based at the college’s city centre campus and was officially opened by Wakefield MP Mary Creagh and the Leader of Wakefield Council, Cllr Peter Box CBE, includes general teaching facilities, specialist engineering labs, a 90-seat lecture theatre, a modern Apple Mac suite, IT rooms and business incubation spaces where local entrepreneurs can bring their business ideas to life.
