Tresham College of Further and Higher Education Opens New £36m Campus in Corby, Northamptonshire

 

Tresham will open its brand new £36m campus in Corby, Northamptonshire to new students from 5th September 2011. The fantastic new building is the latest addition to Corby’s regenerated landscape and will inspire young people and adults to achieve more and gain vocational skills in even more subjects than ever before.

 

The college was one of only 12 projects, and the only one in the East Midlands, to have been approved following a prioritisation and cost reduction exercise by the Learning and Skills Council (LSC) in the summer of 2009.

 

As well as continuing to offer vocational training in Construction, Engineering, Hairdressing and Beauty Therapies, Access to Higher Education and Supported Learning Programmes the new campus has enabled Tresham to introduce courses in Business, Care and Early Years, Computing, Sport and Uniformed Public Services together with a number of Higher Education courses.

 

The modern campus has been designed by Bond Bryan to complement Tresham’s long history of providing highly skilled based, quality courses and has been built on time and on budget by BAM Construction Ltd.

 

The building offers fully equipped classrooms with the latest IT equipment and SMART boards to aid learners experience and knowledge. Fully equipped hair and beauty salons will also be open to the public in addition to a fully refurbished restaurant in the adjacent Manor House on campus.

 

Tresham College of Further and Higher Education has campuses in Corby, Kettering and Wellingborough as well as a specialist centre for Motorsport based at the Silverstone Circuit. The new Corby campus is the second phase of a redevelopment plan for the college’s campus to ensure a quality learning experience for all in north Northamptonshire following the opening of a campus in Kettering in 2007.
