Canvey and District Training Association

Opens on Canvey in 1983

Shannon Way, Canvey

Some of the photos were taken in September 1983 when the Training Centre was already in operation although parts were only just completed. The Centre covered multiple occupations with pupils coming from as far as Rayleigh.

In November of that year Peter Morrison, Minister of State for Employment came to Canvey to officially open the centre. Some of these photos cover that event.

Whatever happened to the centre?
