We’re excit­ed to announce that we’re invest­ing over £600,000 in a sim­u­lat­ed hos­pi­tal ward, along with a range of addi­tion­al health­care train­ing facil­i­ties, to enhance the already impres­sive City Hub cam­pus offer.

A total of £620,000, 50% of which is grant fund­ed through the Government’s T Lev­el cap­i­tal fund­ing pro­gramme, will be spent on build­ing a new hos­pi­tal ward, includ­ing four booth beds, hos­pi­tal gur­neys, diag­nos­tic equip­ment, per­son­al hygiene equip­ment, winch and hoist equip­ment, reha­bil­i­ta­tion facil­i­ties and spe­cial­ist equip­ment for pae­di­atric and elder­ly patient care.

The new cen­tre, called the Not­ting­ham Health­care Hub, will enhance the College’s new T Lev­el pro­vi­sion in health and sci­ence, which will be on offer as part of the new T Lev­el cur­ricu­lum from Sep­tem­ber 2023

The ward will be com­ple­ment­ed by the cre­ation of two new spe­cial­ist class­rooms, equipped with brand new health­care kit for stu­dents to use.

Lisa Wil­son, Exec­u­tive Direc­tor for Employ­er Ser­vices at Not­ting­ham Col­lege, said: Not­ting­ham Col­lege has been embark­ing on an ambi­tious and far-reach­ing pro­gramme of works to bet­ter align its cur­ricu­lum to the needs of our local and region­al econ­o­my. This lat­est news comes on the back of a long line of excit­ing fund­ing wins for the Col­lege, totalling some £10m in the last 12 – 18 months alone. Devel­op­ing our cur­ricu­lum to make our edu­ca­tion and train­ing rel­e­vant, inno­v­a­tive and right for our local and region­al employ­ers to meet their imme­di­ate and future skills needs, is absolute­ly cru­cial and a clear pri­or­i­ty for Not­ting­ham Col­lege, and this lat­est project moves us clos­er to our goal. 

 — Lisa Wil­son, Exec­u­tive Direc­tor for Employ­er Services

Mohammed Ramzan, Deputy Prin­ci­pal in charge of the College’s cur­ricu­lum offer, said: 

Our health­care and sci­ence train­ing offer is exten­sive, reflect­ing the fact that the health­care sec­tor is the largest employ­er in our city. Our young peo­ple, as well as adults train­ing and re-train­ing with us, come to col­lege to gain qual­i­fi­ca­tions and devel­op the skills they need to thrive in a health­care career. 

A sim­u­lat­ed hos­pi­tal ward offers the very best train­ing envi­ron­ment for our stu­dents, offer­ing hands-on expe­ri­ence using indus­try-stan­dard equip­ment, and gives the stu­dent the chance to prac­tice their skills work­ing with patients and under­stand the pres­sures of a busy hos­pi­tal ward. Stu­dents can devel­op a full pic­ture of what a career in the health­care sec­tor actu­al­ly entails. For T Lev­el stu­dents who will be spend­ing a sig­nif­i­cant chunk of their pro­gramme on a work place­ment, this new ward will offer a fan­tas­tic step­ping stone into a real hos­pi­tal envi­ron­ment, from next year. 

 — Mohammed Ramzan, Deputy Principal.

The cen­tre will be devel­oped through­out 2022 and will be com­plet­ed over the sum­mer of 2023 in time for the first cohort of T Lev­el stu­dents in Sep­tem­ber 2023.

Oth­er recent projects enhanc­ing our City Hub offer include a new Dig­i­tal Media Cen­tre with brand new TV and Film stu­dio, pod­cast sound booths, audio and visu­al edit­ing suites and more.

A plan­ning appli­ca­tion has just been sub­mit­ted for an astron­o­my obser­va­to­ry dome for the roof of the City Hub build­ing, and a new £1m sci­ence cen­tre will open with­in the City Hub this Sep­tem­ber, thanks to grant fund­ing pro­vid­ed by the Office for Stu­dents, enhanc­ing our High­er Edu­ca­tion sci­ence provision.
