Dougie Sutherland, Executive Director at Interserve said: “This is the 20th privately-financed education project in which the group has invested and underlines our support for the Government’s investment in education.
“As well as providing some 900 new schools places for students in Hertfordshire, Luton and Reading, we will commit to take on more than 50 young people to work on the projects under NVQs, apprenticeships and work placements.”
Construction started on all the schemes last month with the first due for completion in August 2016.
All of the new schools will be open by November 2016.
