Brooke Weston students studying the Construction & Built Environment Diploma have been keeping a close eye on the development of the new Tresham College. Throughout their studies into structures and materials the students have been regular visitors to the construction site and seen the £36m Corby campus begin to take shape.
The new college was granted planning permission in May 2009 by Corby Borough Council to build its new sustainable Corby campus on a former educational site used by Corby Community College. The 16-acre site will be a key focal point on the eastern approach into the already regenerated town centre, and is situated next to the new railway link which reopened in April 2009.
Our students were given exclusive access around the site, which is due to open in September 2011, and could see the new workshop facilities for subjects such as Construction and Motor Vehicle Maintenance begin to be fitted out with interior partion walls.
Accompanied by their teachers Jonathan Browne and David Eaton, from Tresham, our students are in the final phase of their Diploma studies and are considering which careers paths they may follow in the construction and built environment.
