The upgrade was designed in consultation with students, employers and staff. For staff, the refurbishment has meant new audio visual equipment and teaching resources. Students have benefited from a range of improved facilities including new computers and laptops:
“It’s great to have our own space to rest and study”, said one business & administration apprentice, speaking about the new common room – a safe and welcoming environment, equipped with comfortable seating and refreshments.
Hairdressing industry employers were keen for their apprentices to have more opportunity to practice their hairdressing and barbering skills. In response, tpm have built a fully-equipped onsite training salon.
The new ground floor ICT suite meanwhile provides a state-of-the-art learning environment and improved online examination facilities.
Inspiration wall art supplied by ex-students and employers have provided the finishing touches to a spectacular refurbishment which will be officially launched at the end of February.
