A college on the coast will rebuild part of its campus after getting a slice of £1.5 billion government funding.
East Coast College has been chosen as one of 16 across England to benefit from the government’s further education capital transformation fund.
Apprenticeship and Skills Minister Gilliam Keegan announced on Thursday (April 8) that the windfall has been allocated to transform East Coast’s Great Yarmouth campus on Suffolk Road to create a modern, multi-million pound campus.
The amount of funding East Coast College will receive is yet to be determined, but the project will involve rebuilding significant portions of the east side of the campus, replacing older buildings to create new workshops, classrooms and student social space.
Stuart Rimmer, CEO and principal, said: “We are delighted to be working directly with Department of Education (DfE) to create the most ambitious college building programme ever in the eastern region.
