The new facility will also offer an extensive selection of apprenticeships and short courses, ensuring a comprehensive range of learning opportunities for aspiring professionals in the region.

Dedicated experts based within the new site will also be on hand to directly support local businesses, building further links to employers based on the business park and throughout Denbighshire.
