North Lindsey College has been handed £12.2million to kickstart a major spruce-up of the college estate.
The funding from the Skills Funding Agency will go towards modernising and refurbishing certain parts of the college - and demolishing and replacing other parts.
The project, which starts straight away, will involve the complete refurbishment of the current motor vehicle and engineering departments to provide state-of-the-art workshops, laboratories, digital technologies and other teaching spaces.
The Alan Jackson and John Oddell buildings will also be revamped. It is all set for completion by summer 2015.
Deputy Principal Janice Keilthy, who is leading the project, said: “North Lindsey College is proud to provide exceptional learning facilities for the students and has recently completed a fabulous refurbishment of the Learning Resource Centre and college diner.
“We are committed to continuing this programme of rebuilding and refurbishment to provide an outstanding environment which is safe, accessible and sustainable for students, employers and the local community in which to work and learn.”
The project will focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) and aims to inspire students to gain skills in the sectors which will drive the economy of the local area.
Principal Anne Tyrrell said: “This will be an excellent opportunity for North Lindsey College to involve employers in the design and build of a facility that meets the requirements of the local workforce.
“The college has a strong and successful history in working with local employers and looks forward to working with them on this exciting project.”
