Cabinet Secretary for Education officially opens Campus 6 building project at Pembrokeshire College
The Cabinet Secretary for Education, Kirsty Williams, has officially opened the Campus 6 building project at Pembrokeshire College in Haverfordwest.
The project was match funded through the allocation of £3.3 million from the 21st Century Schools and Education programme and delivers a new building and the refurbishment of the original campus buildings.
The new building includes additional science laboratories, classrooms, study areas, a fitness suite and sports hall as well as additional hair and beauty training rooms as part of the college’s delivery of vocational courses.
The overall aim is that new learners will benefit from exposure to a greater range of courses, in larger, more stimulating classes, which will in turn lead to better outcomes. It is also envisaged that the increase in the range of post-16 options will attract more learners into post-16 learning, and have a positive effect on those from economically deprived areas.
Kirsty Williams said
“I am pleased that the Welsh Government has been able to support this £6.6 million project, with funding of £3.3 million from the 21st Century Schools and Education Programme.
“Campus 6 really is a shining example of what can be achieved through collaboration, partnership working and placing the learner at the heart of decision making.
The creation of Campus 6 gives learners the widest choice of subjects in the county covering both academic and vocational options; and avoids the need for learners to travel between centres to access their learning opportunities.
All learners can also benefit from the high quality sports facilities that are part of this new development.”
