New College Durham announces the opening of their new £11 million state-of-the-art education facility, T.H.E. Hub (Technical and Higher Education Hub). The extension received £2.95 million funding from the Department for Education and will provide the college with a specialist building to deliver higher and technical level skills qualifications.

T.H.E Hub features 23 new teaching spaces including an immersive suite, an early years foundation stage nursery, a sensory room, a hospital ward, a dental suite, an E-Sports arena, cyber security facilities, specialist I.T. classrooms and science laboratories; alongside collaborative and break out spaces for students.

Andy Broadbent, Principal and CEO of New College Durham, said:

“We’re thrilled to welcome our students into the T.H.E. Hub. This state-of-the-art facility embodies our mission to empower our learners with the skills and knowledge they need for a successful future. It’s not just a building; it’s a gateway to careers.”

Luca, Health T-Level student, said:

“There’s a lot space, it looks like it’ll be easier to study in here. There’s a lot more new technology and I think it’ll help with my future and progressing with my course; I’m thinking of going to university or maybe an apprenticeship.”

Find out more about the courses available at New College Durham and take a tour of the new facility at the college’s Information and Advice event, 4:30 – 6:30pm on the first Tuesday of the month (term time).
