It’s an exciting time for Ashford College, with construction work underway on a brand new extension!
Called Phase 2, the new wing will house classrooms and laboratories for Business, Information Technology, and Engineering. The new facilities will create a renewed focus on these up-and-coming fields, and allow 250 more students each year to access the high quality education offered at Ashford College.
Featured will be an ‘Engineering Hub’, which will highlight the role engineering can play in creating solutions to climate change and promoting decarbonisation.
The extension will also be key in delivering the new T Level qualifications, which are equivalent to three A Levels and provide learners with work experience as part of their training. Requiring the latest equipment and technology, the courses will benefit from the brand new facilities offered by Phase 2’s construction.
The extension plan was given a big boost in November 2021 when EKC Group’s bid for funding from the Government’s Post-16 Capacity Fund was successful. With surveying having taken place earlier this year, groundwork has now begun.
