Nottingham College has been awarded yet another grant, this time of more than £186K to support the development of new Higher Technical Qualifications in Construction and Computing.
The grant, awarded through the Higher Technical Education Skills Injection Fund will be used to develop new provision at Level 4 and Level 5.
A new Level 4 course in Modern Methods of Construction will be delivered with part of the grant. Funds will be spent on new resources, equipment and training to ensure teachers are equipped with the knowledge and skills to teach the course and the college’s classrooms and workshops are equipped with the necessary resources to provide appropriate hands on learning.
Another course in development will be an HTQ Level 5 in Computing. This course will provide learners with the most up to date digital skills to move into growing sectors including fintech, software development, cyber security and IT infrastructure.
This latest grant comes on the back of more than £700K which was awarded through the OfS for the development of new engineering courses at degree level and more than £1.2m to develop our degree level offer in science and laboratory technologies. Nottingham College is a specialist provider of higher level vocational training and more than 350 students a year enrol to study at university level within the college. It’s an area of growth for the college which is carving out a name nationally for its higher level dentistry offer, science, healthcare, construction and engineering, digital, hospitality management and business offer as well as its well-established degree offer in Media and Performing Arts.
