The new hub of higher-level skills in the region

The new Centre is transforming higher-level skills training in the District. Not only has it become the new hub of our University Centre at Wakefield College, bringing modern teaching and learning facilities for our students, it will also become a focal point for innovation and entrepreneurship, allowing enterprising students and local start-up businesses to bring their business ideas to life.

ASIC Engineering Centre

Students will benefit from learning in our excellent new engineering centre. The centre provides opportunities to study higher-level courses developed with leading industry employers, including Coca-Cola Enterprises and BOSCH. This allows our students to gain the necessary skills and knowledge to progress into industry and be effective, and make a positive contribution immediately.

Creative & Digital

With the creative and digital industries identified as key growth areas locally, our creative and digital industry students benefit from industry-standard facilities including a Mac Suite and high-powered gaming machines. Collaboration with local businesses to nurture the talent of the future, will help to fill the regional skills gap.

We are now embarking on a new era where our aspirations for higher level education and innovation can be delivered from within the City. Our younger and older people now have the opportunity to access, close to home, the learning and training they need to reach their full potential.
