BOSSES at Accrington and Rossendale College’s are working towards the final phase of a £4m campus transformation.

Despite teaching and learning online, improvement works on the college’s campus have progressed.

The transformational green space creation to enhance the campus environment is now almost complete and wildflower meadows with flora and fauna will be the backdrop to improved access, making getting around the site much easier

A new main entrance to the Accrington and Rossendale College site off Sandy Lane has also been created as a gateway to the college.

An employer hub is to be created in the reception area of the college’s Construction and Automotive Centre in the final phase of the transformation.

The building is set for an overhaul improving the learning experience of students who are on the college’s renowned auto electrics and vehicle technician courses, as well as those working towards career trades including brickwork, carpentry and joinery and plastering.

Principal of Nelson and Colne College Group Amanda Melton said: “We need to continue working hard to bring the extraordinary to Accrington and Rossendale College, and reap the many benefits of being in a leading college group led by Nelson and Colne College.”
