The £250,000 centre is at the main Stonyhills offices of the firm, which specialises in pre-fab fit out and joinery work. It will take on students from the age of 16 and will include those without traditional building qualifications.
As well as teaching core skills, students will also learn modern methods of workshop training and be given high tech computer education.
The centre is the brainchild of Swift owner Gary Swift. He said: “I began my working life as a joiner and I wanted to give something back to the industry.
“We wanted the school to be very much part of all that we do so we built it in the middle of our offices so the students can see the rest of us at work and feel they are an integral part of our success.”
