£28m investment in facilities!
We’ve completed several exciting projects, enabling our students to learn in some fantastic facilities:
Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing facilities
Thanks to a £565,150 investment secured by Dorset LEP through the Dorset Growth Deal the Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing facilities have received a major upgrade which has significantly enhanced the quality of the facilities and reduced the building's carbon footprint. Works include external cladding, new windows/ lights and classroom renovations.

It has space for up to 500 full and part-time learners who will emerge with professional Health and Social Care, Childcare and Dental Nursing qualifications and be able to deliver the highest quality care to the region.
