The West Suffolk College has become the only educational establishment in the East of England to become a centre of excellence.

The Bury St Edmunds college has partnered with the WorldSkills organisation to help enhance the skills of its pupils. 

The scheme will see high performance coaches from Worldskills UK delivering 60 hours of sessions at the college over the next six months, working with staff and students to share their globally acquired knowledge. 

The partnership will help raise the bar for technical training and teaching standards at the college, which is already one of the UK's leading further education institutes and apprenticeship providers.

Dr Nikos Savvas, CEO of West Suffolk College and Suffolk Academies Trust, said: “I am immensely proud that the commitment, energy and dedication of our College community has been chosen for this amazing partnership.
