Car manufacturer Ford is to create a multimillion-pound training centre in Northamptonshire.
The company has also announced a series of engineering and business apprenticeship programmes.
The new centre will merge an existing technical training centre at Daventry and the Henry Ford College in Loughborough, Leicestershire.
The college trains technicians, sales staff and management for Ford's national dealer network.
The new facility in Daventry will open next year.
It will include classrooms, a 200-seat auditorium and a vehicle showroom area.
Ford has also announced a new higher apprenticeship in IT.
