HybridTec is expanding with new training centres opening across the North West, including Cumbria and Greater Manchester.
The training provider, which in August successfully secured £1m worth of funding in partnership with Back to Work Complete Training from the Department for Education, says the news is part of plans for a nationwide expansion.

HybridTec is also targeting additional areas including Greater London, West Midlands, and North of the Tyne, with the intention to establish a site in these regions by August 2023.
