A RALLYING call has been made for the community to back a ‘once in a generation’ opportunity to get a new college in Daventry.

They have been made after news emerged that a statement of intent to bring a 600 place university technical college (UTC) was approved by the Department of Education (DoE).

The next step is a full application which needs to show support from local businesses and residents for the project.

The colleges aims to give 14 to 19-year-olds a high standard of technical and vocational skills in areas such as sustainable technologies while youngsters will be taught how to set up and run their own business.
