Kidderminster College celebrated the launch of our new classrooms with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday 8th June.
The classrooms were opened by Wyre Forest MP Mark Garnier and Kidderminster College’s Principal Cat Lewis.
The new classrooms will provide students with more study spaces, as well as providing new equipment for Digital and Health and Social Care students to help undertake more practical work.
The project, in collaboration with Heart of Worcestershire College, Warwickshire College Group and Kidderminster College was awarded £600,000 in investment, as well as securing funding from the Office for Students to deliver a Construction Higher Education hub.
Cat Lewis, Principal, said: “High Quality, independent careers information, advice and guidance has always been very close to my heart. The SDF project is about much more than shiny new facilities, it is about a legacy that will enable social mobility and economic growth right here in the Wyre Forest and across the wider region.”
Mark Garnier MP said: “The legacy for this project is not just the investment in physical resources, but also in the relationships that have been forged with employers, and the students, past, present and future, that have and will benefit from high quality, independent careers advice, that will no doubt go someway to closing the skills gaps both locally in the Wyre Forest, and more widely across the region.”
