Our Technology, Engineering and Construction (TEC) Centre, opened in June 2016, was the result of a £10million investment to create an amazing learning space.
The TEC Centre was the result of a large construction project to open a modern facility using state of the art sustainable technologies. It consolidates the construction, engineering and motor vehicle curriculum areas into one single central location for over 900 students. This striking modern building provides state of the art workshops to deliver the bricklaying, carpentry, electrical, motor vehicle, plastering and plumbing lessons.
The training areas have been designed to be as realistic as possible to real life working conditions with individual booths to learn each specialist trade.
The College Principal, Peter Mayhew-Smith, commented on the official opening of the TEC Centre
“Our new TEC Centre will transform learning for our students: we now have industry-standard spaces and equipment on a huge scale with opportunities for them to immerse themselves in the crafts and trades they love. The builders, plumbers, electricians, carpenters and mechanics of tomorrow will learn their skills here today.”
This flexible, modern teaching environment we hope will inspire students and staff and improve the environment, experience and quality of the delivery of construction, engineering and motor vehicle courses.
