Orbital South Colleges successful in Funding Bid
05 March 2020
Orbital South Colleges, comprising of campuses at East Surrey College, Redhill and John Ruskin College, Croydon, was successful in a recent Funding Bid for their Vision for Growth Project. The Further Education College has secured £820,000 Local Growth funding through Coast to Capital, a Local Enterprise Partnership building links between local authorities and business in the South East.
The funding will be supporting building projects at East Surrey College, Redhill and John Ruskin College, Croydon. East Surrey College will see a development of the current Gatton Point South Campus, with modern development plans for a new Advanced Technology Centre (ATC). The ATC will include spacious classrooms and lecture rooms, as well as state-of-the-art laboratories to support the College’s higher level construction and engineering courses.
The John Ruskin College site, situated in Selsdon Park Road, Croydon, will expand to include a Construction Skills Training Centre, to accommodate the exciting new Construction and Engineering courses that will open to students from 2020/21.
This funding enables the College Group to expand its support of local businesses, enabling employers to find staff with the right skills for their business, and to be able to access flexible training solutions for their organisations.
