Fly through the new forest campus

We were able to provide Gloucestershire College, their prospective students, parents and the local community with an insight into what the new Forest of Dean Campus will look like, in a flythrough

The vision for the contemporary new campus boasts big open-plan spaces; purpose-built, commercial facilities and workshops; a unique touchdown for large groups and presentations; panoramic views over the stunning Steam Mills lake, and a clear belonging with its rural surroundings.

The heart of the campus will embody a community street; a large central space for work and play, lined with commercial ‘buildings’ such as a salon and restaurant. While the colour scheme and wooden features will reflect the beauty of the Forest of Dean.

Forming part of the wider Cinderford Northern Quarter regeneration project, the campus will be environmentally friendly, easily accessible by car and regular bus services, and packed full of state-of-the-art facilities including construction workshops, new art and creative studios, a commercial training restaurant and a Graduations hair and beauty salon.

Campus Principal, Sandra Tyrrell, said: “We’re very excited to unveil what the new Forest of Dean Campus will look like, to give the community something tangible to look forward to.

“The building work is going to plan and we are hitting all of the planned milestones to date, with excitement building for our staff and students too. Our catering students will even be taking some mince pies out to the builders before they take a well-earned break for Christmas.

“As the only further education college in the area, the new Forest of Dean Campus will offer the full range of post-16 professional, technical and creative courses for young people, whether they want to progress on to university or directly into employment.

“New courses for 2018 include the Level 3 Business Extended Diploma, Level 2 Colouring Services, Entry Level Discover Work Skills and Levels 1 and 2 Multiskills – as well as our more established and popular courses and apprenticeships.”
