Oldham College is investing over £25 million to transform their Rochdale Road campus
These new developments are part of a master plan for the campus which are being delivered by Laing O’Rourke, who have been appointed by the college to develop and deliver this plan in phases over a number of years.
Students starting in 2014 will be part of a radically new Oldham College with three major buildings opening during the year:
A new £7M Learning Hub with 28 light and airy classrooms, a community space and Student Support services. Early Years, Childcare and Business courses will all be based here.
The GM (the Greater Manchester Sustainable Engineering University Technical College), a £9M development, offers a fresh approach to learning for students age 14-19 years. Sponsored by the University of Bolton, the GM gives the best preparation possible for a career in engineering and technical disciplines.
A new £9M Digital Skills Centre, dedicated to innovation & digital technology, with a high tech Fab Lab offering digital printing to fast track innovation & development. The new building will be home to enterprise, media, coding, visual art and content creation, bringing together the creative and technical skills the digital economy demands.
