Over the coming years, we are committed to transforming our environment for the thousands of students that walk through our doors. Our campus transformation will offer first class facilities for people of Wolverhampton and beyond, giving them the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in their chosen career.

Working together with our funders and local suppliers, our projects will also support the local and regional economic recovery, generating and safeguarding 750 jobs for local people.

Construction Innovation Centre extension

This £1.93 million project will see the construction of two purpose-built mezzanine areas delivering increased workshop capacity for electrical and plumbing, as well as refurbished spaces for gas and painting and decorating training. The development will also provide two new additional classroom spaces, equipped with cutting-edge hybrid learning technology to give access to high-quality interactive teaching to students who are unable to attend the sessions in person.

The areas will all be equipped with industry-standard tools and equipment so that students will gain experience of using the same kit as they would in the workplace. They will also benefit from the build offering work experience and apprenticeship opportunities, giving them the chance to work on a large-scale construction project and be involved in building their own learning facilities in partnership with the Contractor.

The new facilities, developed with funding from the Department of Education’s Post-16 Capacity Fund, are due to open for the start of the 2022/23 academic year in September and the project is being led by Wolverhampton-based construction company Interclass PLC.

New city centre campus – City Learning Quarter

The new campus forms part of our ambitious plans to transform our student environment and cement ourselves as a leading education provider in the city. Offering first class facilities for people of Wolverhampton and beyond, thousands of students are set to walk through its doors and gain the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in their chosen career 

The exciting proposals for the City Learning Quarter have been supported by an initial £6.2 million investment from the City of Wolverhampton Council and Black Country Local Enterprise Partnership, which has enabled the completion of design work, site surveys, ground investigations, site acquisition and clearance. The council has also secured £20 million from the government’s Levelling Up Fund and £5 million from the Towns Fund to help deliver the City Learning Quarter vision, which is set to be complete in September 2024.
