City College is due to start work on its new construction trades training centre in Whitehawk within months.
The centre, in Wilson Avenue, Brighton, will equip generations of young people for jobs in the building sector including trades such as plumbing.
The Greater Brighton Economic Board was given a progress update at a meeting in Worthing this week.
Senior politicians and officials from Brighton and Hove and the surrounding area were told that work should start on site in late summer.

Feedback about plans for scores of new homes in Whitehawk has helped kickstart a drive to improve the area.

The council wants to build 58 flats at Findon Road on the old library site and 28 flats on the empty Wellsbourne site on Whitehawk Road, near the Hub. Most will be rented to social tenants, with some possibly sold to fund the scheme.

A consultation event on March saw residents flag up areas for improvement by placing suggestion cards on a scale model of the scheme within the estate.

Now, this feedback is being used for a workshop held by Due East Neighbourhood Council between 10am and midday this Thursday at the Valley Social Club on Whitehawk Way to put together an action plan.
