CLASSROOMS and workshops at Pershore College will be transformed to deliver new technical qualifications after receiving £1.2million of Government funding.
WCG (formerly Warwickshire College Group) has been granted the funding from the £50million T Level Capital Fund.
T Levels are new national qualifications that form part of the Government’s flagship reforms to technical education in England.
The courses combine classroom theory and practical learning with industry placements of at least nine weeks to give students real experience of the workplace.
WCG is among the first college groups to introduce the technical qualifications with its Digital Support Services T Level being delivered from September 2021.
The college group will be delivering T Levels in Engineering, Health & Science and Construction from September 2022.
Pershore College will convert a large open space into a series of classrooms and laboratories to facilitate the delivery of the Health & Science T Level.
This will include the addition of hospital beds and other equipment to provide students with the best learning environment.
