Project phases and packages

Ashington Campus developments

The extensive re-development programme includes the creation of an advanced, state-of-the-art digital academy and a new health simulation ward to develop industry skills for future employment in these specialist sectors.

The student experience will be enhanced with the development of a dynamic student hub providing a central space for students to relax and engage with each other, and access a wide range of specialist support staff and services such as advice on finance, careers, wellbeing and student support.

This is in addition to extensive refurbishment of existing buildings across the college and works to improve health and safety standards including brand new windows, a modern heating system, new boundary fencing and refurbished classrooms.

Investments at Kirkley Hall will see the construction of a bespoke equine centre including indoor arena and a specialist animal management centre to position the college as a leading land-based education and training provider.

There will also be significant investment in a range of highly-specialist and inspiring resources and facilities for students with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and modern residential accommodation for students over 18.
