Work has begun on a new £2.7 million extension to the construction skills centre at Stamford College, a direct response to the substantial growth in recent student applications seen at the college and the increased demand for skilled workers in the trade-based industries within the local area.
The extensive upgrade to the existing provisions on Drift Road, jointly funded by Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership, will provide state-of-the-art learning and teaching resources for students studying plumbing, carpentry, brickwork and electrical installation.
The project will encompass an additional 400sqm of learning and teaching space, including two workshops for the bricklaying department and additional electrical and plumbing workshops.
The facilities will create a modern, flexible workspace that reflects the rapid evolution of the construction industry through automation, carbon reduction and the increased use of prefabrication, ensuring our students have state-of-the-art facilities to excel in their chosen careers.
Students will also benefit from additional study areas for independent learning and welfare support facilities ensuring our students have access to all the support they need during their time with us.
With the project due to be complete by the end of March 2022, if you are interested in pursuing a trade-based career, there has never been a better time to join a Stamford College construction course.
