Sparsholt College Group’s, Andover Campus hosts Autumn Open Events.
Andover Campus is excited to be opening their doors to prospective students with their first two open events of the year on Tuesday 4 and Wednesday 5 October 2022 between 4.30 and 7pm. With its 99.7% A Level pass rate and community-driven values, Andover Campus continues to ensure students are getting the most out of their education, going on to top university destinations and impressive roles in the workforce.
The event will be a great opportunity to learn about the multi-million-pound investment across both Sparsholt and Andover campuses in readiness for the delivery of new T Level qualifications. T Level qualifications will be delivered at both campuses thanks to investment from the Department for Education (DfE).
The Department for Education (DfE) recently announced the outcome of the T Level Capital Fund applications and confirmed that proposed projects for Digital, Construction, and Health and Science at Andover College and Agriculture, Environmental, and Animal Care at Sparsholt College have been awarded a total of £2.2million investment.
College Group Principal Julie Milburn said: “The introduction of T Level qualifications is an exciting time; with new qualifications which meet the needs of local employers, and which have been designed to provide parity of regard between vocational and academic qualifications. The College Group is grateful for this investment from the Department for Education which will provide us with continued investment in the modern industry standard facilities that our learners need and deserve.”
At Andover Campus, the investment will allow for the expansion of the Technology and Future Skills Centre to provide for the delivery of the Onsite Construction T Level, with extended facilities for Bricklaying and Carpentry. New facilities are also currently being developed for the delivery of T Levels in Digital Development and Production, and Nursing. Digital investment will provide for multimedia facilities, offer a broadcasting suite, and provide a new cyber security laboratory. The new nursing facility will provide mock wards, consultation facilities and mock ups of domestic care settings with the appropriate equipment.
