£1m facelift project at College complete
Electrical Installation, Plumbing and Gas students studying at the College’s London Road campus will all benefit from improved teaching and training areas.
The new facility will service full-time and part-time students and apprentices, and includes two new assessment areas for tradesmen requiring certification to practice their trades safely and competently. The building also houses a computer aided design training facility, three dedicated classrooms and a modern open plan workshop, with a total of 24 training bays.
Plumbing apprentice Elaine Marsh, 19, said: “I’m really enjoying my Apprenticeship. Shrewsbury College was the only place that did the course I wanted, so it was a massive bonus to have the new plumbing facilities. We’ve got all the tools we need and I’m looking forward to being let loose on all the training bays.”
The project followed the £3 million refurbishment of the College’s Engineering and Construction Centre, which was officially opened by former Tomorrow’s World presenter, Kate Bellingham, in February.
Shrewsbury College will hold its next London Road Advice Event from 4.30-7.30pm on Wednesday 14 November, where visitors will be able to view all of the improved facilities and talk to current students.
